Today, 3B went to school for the first time. OK, so it’s two half-days a week, and it’s a play-based and emergent curriculum, so it’s practically a Montessori school, but still, it’s school, with teachers and snacks and recess and circle time and learning and ohmigawd the handouts–a freakin’ blizzard of paper, people!
3B’s friend, Little J is in the same class, which should be fun because they play together so well, when they’re not pinching, hitting, pushing, having meltdowns and generally being two-year-olds. But really, they’re great together.
And Mama and I survived too, in great style I might add. We even met a few parents at the Parent’s Schmooze in the Parent’s Lounge after dropping 3B off. When did I become old enough to go into the Parent’s Lounge without a note from my teacher?
