First Week @ School

While my last post was about Achu's first day at school, here are some more notes on his first week at school.

Since Achu is just 2.5 years old both me and DH did not want to stress too much on his school schedules. So we opted for 3days per week schedule. So after his successful first day at school, we tried to follow the same morning ritual Tuesday also though Achu doesn't have school that day. And Wednesday, he woke up on time to get ready for school. He also had his breakfast and got dressed with no issues. His day at the school was also very much fine like it was on Monday. Achu's play school teachers are Miss. Jessy and Miss. Qu(For Chinese). Achu is yet to get attached to his teacher as he is not allowing her to feed his snacks. He gets reminded of me and starts crying :((

I spent the whole of Thursday consoling him to have snacks when teacher feeds him also conforted him not to miss me much in the school.

And then comes Friday. Morning rituals were same as Monday and Wednesday. He got ready, had his breakfast and got ready as usual. But I suspected symptoms of Cold. I felt a mild stuffiness in his nose. But he was more cheerful than other days. Probably he also knows TGIF ;-). On his way to school in the bus also he singing happily along with his friend Shreyas.

Once out of the bus, he happily held hands with Shreyas and walked towards the school on his own. Well I was even more happier at his development. He reached school and the teacher welcomed him, wiped his hands with the sanitizer, Achu said Good Morning to the teacher and ran straight into the class. At this point I was flying high in a cloud and then it happened. Achu who happily went into the school came out with his eyes tearing like anything, hugged me tight and did not let go. He did not wanted me to leave him and go :-(( Poor guy realized tht he would miss me for the next 2 hrs and he just did not want to accept any bargains/bribes .... All he wanted was to just go home :(( May be I talked/advised too much about being independent at school, he must have got really scared. The Teacher managed to pacify him for the next 2hrs as it was 'Arts/Crafts' that day. He still little upset throughout the class. Also refused to take his snacks when fed by the teacher. I was just roaming around the school for the next 2hrs as I wanted to take Achu home immediately if at all he gets into vomiting etc., due to his crying. The school had outdoor playing for the second half of the session. Achu was not so interested in that too. All he wanted was to go home. The moment he saw me coming to pick him up, he started crying again and wanted to go home immediately. Well, he became normal once i took him to a near by toy shop. I had plans of buying a school bag as well.

Well, Achu's first week at school was almost a success and am very happy for him. Well missing me at school I think is normal for any kid at this age. I am sure Achu who is smart in everything he does shall overcome this too :D :D
