Day 140 – First 2 weeks…

I'm not gonna lie, I was nervous.  So nervous about Jaia starting school.  I had nightmare after nightmare on her behalf that things would not go well.  I fully expected her to turn around and run toward me wailing as she grabbed my leg and begged me not to leave her there.  I worried in advance how I would handle it.  Would I walk away, sneak away before she noticed, give in and take her home where she feels safe and loved? And then none of it happened.  Day 1 went swimmingly.  Day 2, which I thought would be worse once she realized what was going on, went...swimmingly.  Day 3, much of the same.  And now, after 2 full weeks as a student, she's a pro. And the best part: friends!  She instantly connected with a couple of adorable little girls.  I love to hear them call out to her as we arrive each day.  She instantly beams and runs off to meet them, leaving Wes and I to fend for ourselves for the next 2 and a half hours. And like any student, she's been given an assignment to complete.  Jaia has to do a 'show and tell' next week.  One of her little buddies presented today and it seemed to make her more excited to get up in front of the class and talk about something she loves. Now the big decision about what she wants to show.  So far everything I've suggested has been shot down.  I'm curious to see what she deems worthy.  I'll keep you posted. Until then...Whhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Auntie Jenny - That’s so great that she loves it. Hopefully it always stays that way 🙂
Can’t wait to hear what she picks!
