Miss Peach had her open house today for preschool...
This was gonna be a post about how I had to smooth talk her out of the Snow White, Fairy, Princess costume... which she feels is appropriate for all occasions.
Finally...after much coercing, Miss Peach and I compromised on... street clothes with Princess accessories...and all was right with the world:)
This was gonna be a post about meeting her teacher, and seeing her classroom, and meeting the other kiddos in her preschool class...
All of us kiddos and parents listened as her new teacher addressed us, and handed out the packet to help us on our transition to preschool.
I welled up with tears when the teacher discussed dealing with separation anxiety...and said "this isn't about your kiddos...they are ready. The separation anxiety information is for you..."
'Cause right then and there it hit me...While I had been saying all along that Miss Peach was so ready for preschool...I am not:( I will deal with it, and be happy for her, and encourage her...but the fact of the matter is, I'm gonna miss my baby girl *sniff, sniff*
It would have been all well and good to end my post here...me dealing with my sweet little Pixie getting ready for her first day of preschool...then. I. saw. it...
The daily schedule...
I had signed on for what I thought was 8:30-12:30 five days a week.
Well...they changed that. Turns out...it's now a full day program!
Yeah...it's a six hour a day, five days a week preschool program!
Holy, how the H*ll am I going to deal with that, Batman?!? I'm so not ready:(
Don't get me wrong...I'm an extremely rational person. I am totally going to play this by ear and see how it works for Miss Peach. If she enjoys having a full day program, I'm gonna suck it up and be happy we found it.
I'm hoping that perhaps I can pick her up after lunch and before nap time (closer to 12:30) I do know there are earlier drop offs, and later pick up times for parents who work...so perhaps, I can work out an earlier pick up time if that's what is needed...
I'm freaking out here... *deep breathes* just need a little hand holding:O
