J’s cries as he was held back by his preschool teachers this morning didn’t help. I literally pried his arms and legs off my leg so I could leave his classroom, after 10 minutes of reassuring him that I would see him after playtime. One of the other parents arrived and exclaimed “he IS normal!” (My typical exit from preschool consists of a quick kiss and hug, and he runs off to play, with little regard to me. I suspect the normal ease of my exit is envied.)
I guess J and I are both flailing a bit today, recovering from the 5 day weekend of illness recovery and parental juggling.
Let’s see if I can recover from that jump…
