So I have run into a bit of a problem. From my last post, you see the smiling happy little girl going to her first day of school. Well...that is no longer! Today was just our third day and it was by far the hardest obstacle I have EVER had to overcome. It started in the middle of the night with her waking up screaming, ''Í am not going to my new school!" She did this about five times throughout the night. Once morning came it was constant crying and screaming. I dressed her, did her hair, brushed her teeth, washed her face, and got her in the car all while she was screaming. And guess what...all the way to school, she cried. I left her in her classroom on the floor kicking and screaming, "Mommy don't leave me"! OMG It was heartbreaking. I managed to wait until her classroom door was shut before I shed the first tear. I cried all the way home. I paced the house until time to get her. I even got there thirty minutes early to just wait in line (well I was first so I was the line) to pick her up. I saw her coming down the hall just a smiling and laughing with the other children. She hopped into the car and said she had a good day but she wasn't go back anymore.

I knew that this would be a huge transition for her and me, but I had no idea it would be this difficult. I know she is being taken very good care of at school but she sure does put up a fight. Being a mom is tough but the speed bumps such as this, makes it so much tougher. Does anyone has some advice to pass on to a terribly worn out mom?

The best advice I have is to KEEP TAKING HER TO SCHOOL! It is so hard to leave your baby when they are crying and screaming for you, but you have to. And once you drop her off, don't go home. Go get a manicure or go grocery shopping or something so you are not sitting at home thinking about her. You can do it!!! It will get better!
