Eliel had his first day of preschool last week. I was so nervous that he wasn't going to enjoy it and was going to cry when I left him but I was so pleasantly surprised!
The first day of school was a meet and greet with his teacher. Eliel enjoyed checking out all the new toys as well. The second day, Eliel had to go by himself. The teachers did a wonderful thing by establishing a routine for E the day before at the meet and greet. So, when it was time to leave him, he had his mind set on going in the room and following the routine. I gave him a hug and a kiss and he walked right in. I was so flabbergasted that it took me a few seconds to realize he wasn't having a melt down! I was so proud of him!
Since then, he's been doing great. A little crying right before he walks in but once he's in, he's fine. And he greets Aldo and I with a smile when we pick him up so that's wonderful!
