It finally happened!
It is truly a momentous day.
Today, since starting school on January 2nd, Anna did not cry at drop off.
I've mentioned before that Anna was having a very hard time adjusting to school. You can read all about it here and here. After all these months of stressing and worrying, we were about to pull the trigger and just try again in September when the miracle finally happened.
It all started to unfold last week - an usual ONE AND HALF hour of crying fest turned to sobbing for 30 minutes. Then it was 10 seconds. Then, today, nothing. Not a peep. Just a "Mama, I love you!" and off she went into her classroom. I caught her giving her teacher a hug as I walked away. I am so proud of her! :) :) :)
Now, I don't expect that she will never cry at school again, but it's a great feeling knowing that she can do it. That she has made a significant progress since January. It took her a while to get here, but slow and steady wins the race, right? Haha.
It happened to be report card day...and here is what the teacher had to say:
This totally calls for a celebration.
