Preschool: year 3


This year though, I was worried about criers. 

I love 4 year olds. They are smart and funny and fun and we play with crayons and play dough and dress up. There are swings and slides and nature walks. It's basically the coolest job ever. Plus I get to indulge in my superhero t shirt obsession. 

The problem is that none of that fun stuff can happen until they get to know me and not miss their moms so much. 

Sometimes that takes a few minutes and sometimes it takes a few days. For the littler guys it can take weeks. Although it feels much longer when they won't stop crying. Poor babies.

This year my new kiddos walked right in and got down to the business of having fun. No tears. No crying. Nothing but smiles. It was epic.

I'm hoping it was a sign of how our year together is going to go and not a "things can only get worse" situation.

  1. Ahh, that sounds like such an amazing job! My preschool was a daycare as well and I pretty much spent my life there from 6 months old to age 7, and I still think about my teachers and wonder what they're up to (if they miss me and my inability to take naps). Good luck with this school year! :)

    1. Sadly there is no nap time at my school but it's okay because there is snack time!

    1. Thanks! I say that all the time but I think it means more when someone else says it. :-)
