Little Boy Is Out of Sorts

Miss Jennifer reported that my son was rather out of sorts today at school.

He had a hard time separating this morning, wanting me to stay with him and cuddle him. It may have been because it was rainy and dreary and he was all bundled up to withstand the weather, but more likely it was because it was only his second day back at school, back to real life where he goes away for a few hours most days and I go back to working. I picked him up at 12:30 p.m. and managed to get him to sleep for an hour.

We found out yesterday that we dodged a bullet a couple of months ago when we chose Hidden Treasure Nursery School for Lucas. The other major contender for our business just closed. Another one closed! I can hardly believe it. That’s three Waldorf preschool closures in Fair Oaks in 5 months. Unfortunately, it seems the owner of that school is very ill. Several new children have joined Lucas’s preschool, so there were new faces there today both when I dropped him off and picked him up. Maybe the mommies are cool. That would be nice.
