My Son's First Preschool VisitMonday, August 24, 2009
Today Paolo visited with his daycare class and seemed quite comfortable in the toddler room. He wasn't sure if he should explore the room or hug my leg tightly, at first. But once he noticed the number of child-size furniture, he went to town. He pulled out the first chair he could grab and then nestled his little bottom onto it. Then, just like Goldilocks, he pulled out another chair and tested it out, too. And if that wasn't enough, he continued trying out every available chair in the room. I think it was a nice change from the struggle he encounters at home when he tries to climb the sofa or any other piece of furniture for that matter. It was the cutest thing to see his eyes light up at the ease of finding a comfortable place to sit. When he discovered some toy cars and trucks, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to casually sneak my way out of the room. I went to the office and finalized a few things with the administrator and left peacefully after a quick phone call to the teacher in Paolo's room confirmed he was happy and had not shed a single tear.
