After about 10 minutes, I returned to the classroom and heard his teacher correct him for throwing toys ~ yep, that's a problem! Nathan throws everything. I'm glad to have his teachers working on this too.
After we left the school, I went home picked up and then hit the gym!! At about 11:15am, my phones rings ~ it was school! Not good. I was totally frightened. What could have happened? Did Nathan choke on his apple (snack for the day)? Did he fall in the indoor play area? Within seconds my head is swirling. No, he fell asleep!!! Oh thank God that was it!
My first motherly instinct was to go pick him up but then I thought, Nathan needs to get used to this and if I go get him he's only going to wake up anyway. Knowing how this would all play out, I asked his teacher to wait a few minutes and wake him up ~ see how he does. If he's still cranky ~ I'll come get him. We can ease into this slowly. No problem. Then I asked her if she had a camera? Yep! I could resist!! lol
About 30 minutes later my phone rang again ~ it was the school letting me know Nathan had woken up on his own about 15 minutes later and was "happy as a clam!" YEAH! He just needed a power nap. He gets up to darn early. It's almost 6:00am now and he's been stirring in his room for about 20 minutes now. How is he going to get through today? His teachers also took a few more pictures of his first day!! I was so excited! They are doing colors for the month and this weeks color is yellow ~ Nathan actually needs to wear something yellow to school today. How cute! This is exactly what I wanted for Nathan ~ little friends and a fun learning environment.When I picked him up he was very sleepy and a little upset. His teachers shared with me that he had a great day. They also shared the cutest story~ when Nathan was very tired and a little upset during the morning another boy came over to him, (while he rested his head on the teachers shoulder) rubbed his back and began singing twinkle twinkle little star!! The teachers were really moved by the show of compassion for their new fellow classmate. So sweet.
I'll keep you posted! So far ~ so good!
