Tot School Thursday was a roller coaster. It was good that drop off happened the way that it did. I was glad all the moms left promptly. Thank you. The majority of the Thursday class is younger than the Tuesday class, and none of them have ever been away from mom on a consistent basis, so they are still adjusting. It may take 2 months for them to get into the groove of tot school. Kids adjust much more quickly if you drop them off every day at a daycare (about 2 weeks) but when we only meet once a week it will take a little while longer. There were a lot of tears for the first 20 minutes of tot school. I appreciate my patient neighbors who were having breakfast out on their balcony. They shared words of encouragement sharing about how they admired what I do and that they just love our garden. After about 20 minutes of holding kids and distracting them with different toys, activities, and snack time the storm of emotions calmed. They are still adjusting and when one cries it becomes a chain effect so that 2 or 3 more cry. Once we got going though it was a great day.
