School so far...

School started this week and I just had to post a couple of the adventures Brooklyn has had so far.
Wednesday I walked into the school lobby to wait for Brooklyn when I found her already waiting for me, all by herself. She had her backpack on and all. I asked her why she was there alone and she said it was because she got lost. I took her back to her classroom where I found her teacher still reviewing with the other students. I told the student teacher that I found Brook alone in the lobby and she said, oh we have a problem with a couple students who leave without asking.
I understand that Brooklyn HAS to ask permission to leave the room but it did upset me that absolutely no one noticed she was gone! She could have been taken. Needless to say Brook and I had a very long talk about how important it is to stay in her classroom unless she asks to leave first.
Thursday I went to pick her up again. Thank goodness she listened to me and stayed in the room all day. I did however find out that little Brooklyn was sent to the quiet chair because she kept talking while the teacher was talking. Poor Brook she just has no prayer. I asked her to please only talk when the teacher gives them talk time. I sure hope Brook can get used to being in school. I felt so terrible because Brook came home and started to cry. She said she had a hard day because no one played with her on the playground. I asked her why. She said it was because she didn't want to play what the other kids were playing. I told her if she wants to play sometimes she needs to go along with the others and play what they want to play. It broke my heart to see her so sad. I'm sure she will play the rest of the week.

Oh, those are the kinds of things that make me nervous to send my kids off to school - especially her feeling alone on the playground.

I'm sure it will get better.

Oh, sounds just like Brooklyn! She reminds me SO very much of Taylor as a little girl. Just a Spirited kid, and very alive and vivacious and outgoing. She's lucky to have a mom who appreciates those qualities!

(Yes, we survived "little Taylor". It was really a ride most days!)

So glad you get to have another little boy. He & Mason will have a great time together, and Brooklyn will be a phenomenal overseer!
