After the crying scene and clutching me for dear life that took place this morning, I wasn't holding out for a happy mood when I went to get her. But I got one anyway! When I pulled up and looked at the playground I didn't see her. The teachers aid saw me and came over to tell me she actually had a good day. Just then, she came around the corner with 2 new little friends holding her hands sweetly and leading her over to Mommy. She looked happy! She lit up when she saw me and yelled "DOOR! DOOR MOMMY! Come ON!" But it was not a desperate get-me-out-of-here plea. It was more just excitement. I got a chance to talk to the director while she was making her way around to the front door. Such a nice person. She stayed and waited till I got there so she could reassure me Ruby was doing okay. She said if Ruby was crying all day and seemed too young and not ready she would DEFINITELY let me know, but she felt after the initial crying in the morning she was actually doing well. Such a relief! The teachers all told me the same thing. Except for the accidents. We seem to be having a problem with that so I get a nice goody bag in her backpack to wash each day. Nice. But hey, at least she's out of diapers. :-) And the teachers have been very gentle and kind to her. I really like them.
We got to the car and she just gave me a big old hug. She said the words I never get sick of hearing - "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, MOMMY!" with a big smile on her face. I lifted her up and put her in her car seat and she just beamed. "Mommy, I glad!" I never heard her use that word b4. So cute it just made my day. I'm glad too, angel. Hopefully she'll be getting used to school in no time!
