    Pondering Preschool

    I got the info for our preschool of choice for Samantha, and it looks very promising. I may even forego researching school options 1 and 2 if this one ends up being as cool as I think it is. It has a lot of great programs, and a lot of aspects I feel good about in terms of their curriculum. We will go take a tour soon, and I hope that will make our decision for us, because everything else seems wonderful thus far.

    So here I am, getting out of the river (Denial), drying off, and deciding where to send my child to begin her education. Scares the shit out of me. School was not fun for me, overall, and I pray every day that she has the exact opposite experiences that I had, and that I don't make my past issues her present issues. She is bright, funny, smart and sweet, and I hope she makes friends easily and does well. But she is also outspoken, loud, and can be a little bit snitty (you know, like her dad) - and those things can work against a girl in school. I hope to be dead wrong, and I hope she has kids lining up to be her friend. And I REALLY hope that no one teases, hurts or badgers my little sweet girl. I'm not sure I could bear that. And I'm not sure her tormentors would survive it.

    Ugh. No more thinking about that. Positive thoughts bring positive things, right?

    She will be great, and will love school.

    Hey, don't knock it - writing things over and over worked when I was in school, right?

    She will be great, and she will love school. She really will, Cathy. I would take your little girl in a heartbeat, and you know I don't like too many kids outside of my own.

    I feel your pain Cathy. The thought of sending D to school makes me vomit in my mouth a little. Kids are cruel. It doesn't matter how fabulous our kids are, they will get teased at some point. It makes me want to shadow her all day everyday and kick the ever loving shit out of the kids that aren't nice to her. My poor love is shy, painfully so - and I know it's going to be the hardest thing I've ever had to do to send her to school alone....without me. UGH!!!!
