Bad First Day at a New School

My daughter started a new school today for preschool. I picked her up and they told me she cried for me all day. Her face was puffy and red, and my heart has been broken since I picked her up! She has always loved school, so this is my first real taste of working mom guilt. I put on a tough face to talk her through it, but when I got home I ran to my room and cried my eyes out! Any ideas on what I can do to ensure that she has a good day tomorrow?

  1. Sorry to hear she’s not having a good time yet. I haven’t had that problem so I don’t know what to say that could help. My sister is going through the same right now. My nephew has been crying for four days in a row now, everytime she takes him to daycare. BUT he was like this last year too for the first couple weeks and then he had a great time. She is also crying but like you she makes sure my nephew does not see her or it would just make things worse. I hope everything gets better soon! ♥

    1. Thanks, Carolina! She is slowly adjusting, so I’m hoping by next week there is no more nerves. I spoke up and asked the school to keep an extra-special eye on her. They were very kind and have been doing their best to make sure she isn’t overwhelmed.
