This time last year was really nervous thinking that in a month my little boy
was going to start the school, he did not go to the kindergarten (His grandparents taked care of him, the four of them are retired and have a lot of free time), so I thought
how he was going to adapt, if he would listen the teacher, how he would react
with other children... and how he would interact, because last year
SuperBoy did not talk, nothing beyond dad, mom and water (in Spanish is a really simple word)... but that goes for another post... luckily toilet training was surpassed...
we talked him about the school, that he would play
with other children, that he would be a little bit in the morning and a bit more in
the afternoon as with his grandparents, and sometimes he seemed enthused and others he said he did not want to go ...
Finally we get to the feared day, that day when you bring him to the
classroom (during the adjustment period, they allowed us to take and pick them the
classroom) and see that we are all equal, those who have gone to
kindergarten and those who do not, each one reacts
in his own way, some run into the classroom
to play with the toys leaving their parents, others cling to the legs of their parents and
organize the show of the century, and some as SuperBoy stayed with grief
face looking from inside the classroom...
teachers told us that the less we keep the goodbyes it would be better... and I should be agree with them, is better to talk about anything different from school
until getting the door, then kiss, and let them. There
are days that make it easy, others that it is difficult (once a teacher had to pull out him from me), but although we are
thinking all day what he's doing at 10 seconds they are playing so happy
forgetting that they did not want go,
(and that is true, because one day I wait when he did not see me and he went directly to play with some wheels they have and so happy) and when finally they start adapting to the
routine and to get in and out of the school happy, that ... that is priceless ... it may seem to you absurd but you have such a sense of accomplishment that you feel great. :)
And you? How was your adaptation to school?
