Bella Goes to School

Bella had her first day of school this week. She’s attending a parent/nanny run morning program at one of the mom’s homes three days a week. It was started a few years ago by a mother who had a child that was too shy to attend the school Addie goes to. Bella’s not the shy type so I wasn’t worried about her starting. In fact I couldn’t wait for her to have a more structured day with socialization with other children. The other moms were hesitant to have her start during a transitory period for the school and kept putting off her start day so it wouldn’t interupt anything. When we finally showed up for the first day, Bella walked right in like she owned the place. She started playing with the toys and introduced herself with her name during the morning song. She didn’t even turn to say goodbye. When I came to pick her up she was happy as a clam playing outside with the other little girls. The other moms were shocked at how easy it was to have Bella joing the school. I am very proud of my big girl attending school all by herself. The teachers say she participates during the lessons and plays well with others. There are a total of 5 little girls in the class which is really fun. She loves playing at school and is especially happy about her new backpack. Thanks to Aunt Rachel for such a thoughtful Christmas present. She loves wearing it!
