Of course Kase wanted to know why he had to go to preschool. So I listed several reasons, one being sharing with others. So for a while when he would share or do anything off of my list of reasons for preschool he would say, see mama I don't need preschool. He is only going 2 days a week for 3 hours but for him and me it is a big step ( and our entire family.)
In order to get him excited about preschool I told him we would have a preschool celebration the few days before his first day. I let him choose some fun things to be apart of our celebration. First he chose golf. So of course we all went to the course and played a round of golf with him.
He also decided he would like to bowl.
The night before his first day I let him choose the menu. He chose chicken, green beans, corn, and watermelon. So he became a little cook and helped me prepare the meal. While he was napping I made the table festive and make him a pencil cake as well. He was so proud of his special meal.
Of course the morning of, I wanted him to have a good breakfast. So he enjoyed muffins that we had made the day before and a little chocolate milk. I say little because there really isn't even enough chocolate in the milk to turn it brown but in his eyes it was a special treat.
Yes, there were tears that morning at preschool drop off. The preschool celebration plan did work, I just prepared the wrong kid. Kase did not cry, but Knox was a mess. He cried and yelled Kase's name as we pulled off.
Overall Kase had a great day!
My 2 favorite things that he said about preschool was Mama no crying and no tattling and, I just walked out that door smart!
Who knew all it took was walking out that door in just one day. I realized I'm not sad or nervous that he is in preschool just sad that he is old enough to go. God has blessed us with amazing children and even though I don't want them to grow up I can't wait to see what God has in store for their lives.
