As I feared, Bug’s first morning was a disaster. When it came time to get dressed, she announced she wasn’t going and that she wouldn’t put on her uniform. After much negotiating we finally just had to put her in the car in her underwear and dress her in the parking lot. As you can see, she wasn’t amused:
I thought we were actually going to still be on time, but lo and behold, the clocks at school are fast, so we walked in a minute or so late, meaning I didn’t have a lot of time to love on her and get her settled in. Needless to say she was wailing and calling out “mommy, mommy” when we left. I feel like crap. I know she’ll settle in and be fine, but wow, this was a hard morning.
Just so you don’t think all of the last week or so has been horrible, here’s Bug and G having fun in the hotel pool– a little counterpoint to the sad picture above!
