“My son was so excited to start Kindergarten! We got all of his supplies, packed him a lunch and I took him to school. I waited patiently throughout the day waiting for him to finish his day. At the end of the day, he raced out to the car and told me he had a wonderful day. He just loved his teacher and his new friends. The next morning, I got him up to go to school and he began crying. ‘What do you mean, go to school? I thought I already did that, now I am finished’.”
“I was greeting students on the first day of school and a little girl was standing by herself. I walked up and asked her name. She said her name was “Princess.” I looked at my list and didn’t see Princess on the list. I asked her mom’s name, hoping for a last name to match with Princess. She said, “Mommy.” I asked about your dad next, and she responded, “Daddy,” and then started crying. I comforted her as we walked the building, but nothing clicked for her. She stayed with me and later we walked the building again. It was then that she then saw a teacher and said, “I know her!” Come to find out, that was her classroom.”
