Rough Morning...

Rough Morning...

Anna and Ethan are FINALLY back at preschool.  Anna hasn't been there for 3 weeks and Ethan hasn't been there for 2 weeks.

I'm not sure why, but I seem to have the kids who just want to be home...home bodies.  Megan was the same way at that age, although she was there all day because I worked full-time.  She would get almost stressed out on Saturday at the thought of going to back to daycare.  Now Anna is the same way.  Actually Ethan is fine with it, although he does kind of feed off of Anna.

I started warning them yesterday that they would be back at school today.  Anna did start getting upset yesterday and Ethan tried his best to comfort her by telling that he would be there with her.  Cute.  Well, the pre-warning didn't really help much because she fought tooth and nail this morning.

Ethan, who was fine, finally broke down when taking off his coat at preschool.  I felt bad for him, just because he was fine but Anna being upset started to effect him.  I think Anna's biggest issue there is not only is she much more introverted when with other people - but that strong-will comes out.  She is not coddled there and is expected to do what she is told, which as a strong-willed child is not good.  Anna actually butt's heads with the pre-school teacher.

I love the teacher, we have been friends with her and her family and all the daycare (preschool) families for many years since Megan had gone there.  I comforted by the fact that she is not upset because of being treated unfairly, thank goodness for that with some of the horror stories you hear.

I think we all have problems getting back in to the swing of things when we've been away for too long.  Whether it's work, exercising, school, a home business, journaling, or any number of other things.  I do believe the key is the consistency of just doing it...even on the days we don't feel like it. 

Hopefully with maturity and consistency it will get easier on Anna and us.
