Yesterday we pick up O from preschool. She’s still having a hard time, but she’s getting a bit better. I started this new technique of discussing who she will see first when she gets there, and what will she want to do first. It’s not working. She’s still asking for me to stay with her. Instead I respond, I will walk you in the classroom, but then Mommy needs to talk to the teacher. Kinda working.
But back to last night. We put her in the car, and we ask her, How was your day? What did you do at school?
ME: I understand you colored and worked on numbers.
DH: Did you play with your friends?
O: I have no priends.
DH: (giggles) So what do you do there?
O: I play all by myself.
DH: And what do the other kids do?
O: They hit me in the eye with a bowling ball.
DH: (more giggles) What did the teacher do>
O: She hit me in the eye too.
