Reporter Turned Mommy

Pre-school 180

on September 25, 2012

I am on a high right now. That’s because Blake was WONDERFUL today at Mommy and Me Pre-school! He was a completely different child.

When it was time to put the toys away, Blake turned to me and said, “I sit in mommy’s lap?”. I quickly answered “Yes” and he got his own carpet square and was one of the first kids to sit down. (This is a HUGE change from three weeks ago. See THIS POST for details) I didn’t want to do anything to rock the boat. I was afraid to make eye contact with the other moms or even breathe, for fear that this good behavior would disappear!

Thankfully, it didn’t. Blake sang the songs, listened to the teacher, and surprise of all surprises, he even walked up to the chalkboard when the teacher called his name and placed a cloud on the board, all by himself. I seriously thought we were MONTHS away from him doing that!

I think repetition is the key. This was our third week of pre-school and we also started taking him to  Church Sunday School. This, combined with practice at home, is what I believe led to today’s turn around. I am just so proud of my little guy!

How long did it take your kids to “get it” when it came to a new activity? I plan on spending the rest of the day basking in the glow of this one small victory, because who knows what next week will bring?!!

    good job Blake!

  3. He is precious. I was never in class with my kids so I don’t have a good indicator.
