Registering for PreSchool
Finally, yesterday we got to the "school" and filled out the paperwork to register her for class. It was a bit hectic, as we had come right when the current morning session was ending and there were children going to various cars, etc. I finished filling out the paperwork and said, "okay, let's go" to Emma and Quincey. Emma started to follow me, but Quincey hung back. When I hear this little voice, "Bye Mommy! I wub you!" I turned around and she looked so little standing there - not sure where to go, chin down, unsure blue eyes looking at me with eyebrows raised, thinking I was leaving her there, right then. Augh! It just about broke my heart! She wanted to stay, but her mother was just abandoning her without hugging her or giving her a kiss or ANYTHING!! I rushed back and gave her a big hug and when I told her I wasn't leaving her today and we would come back another day. She held my hand and skipped back to the car.
I don't want her to ever let go! My eyes are welled up with tears again as I write about this, because I felt so badly that she thought I was just leaving without hugs or kisses or anything! I need therapy, now. That was traumatic for me!!!
