My Work Here is Done

September 10, 2009


Lily has started Kindergarten. I knew she would love it overall, but sometimes she is mighty shy and reserved at the beginning of an experience. At the orientation, she wouldn’t even talk to her teacher and today too, she sought refuge behind me when he greeted her at the door. By the time we had unpacked her supplies, hung up her backpack, pinned on her bus tag, played with some play-doh molds, and decorated a name crown (about 10 minutes in total), though, the teacher announced that all the parents could leave. Lily still hadn’t spoken to anyone but me, so I very gently said, “I think it’s time for me to leave now…” and Lily couldn’t agree quickly enough; she was playing in the puzzle corner by the time I was out the door.

That was easy.
