Sorry the title of this post is pretty lame, but it is what it is - sucky!
Jackson is doing well at his new school. He comes home with sweet projects and drawings. His vocabulary triples almost every day. And he's eating some really great food and is "the best napper in the class".
However, dropping him off every morning is pure torture. The first week was great. Mr. dropped him off and he waved bye like such a big boy. Weeks 2 and 3 result in Jackson clinging on to either one of us for dear life and screaming at the top of his lungs. His teacher literally has to peel him off of us while we run away.
I know that he settles down and has a great day minutes after we leave. But, hearing his screams when I get in my car to leave just plain sucks! I hate starting my day this way, it just breaks my heart.
We've been dropping Jackson off for child care since January, so this is not a new concept to him. I'm pretty sure Jackson just hates the fact that he has to share with 11 other kids and isn't as spoiled as he has been...guess time will tell!
At least picking him is a completely different story. He beams from ear to ear and can't jump into my arms fast enough - it almost makes me forget how sucky my day started, almost.
