Everyday when I pick Christopher up from nursery, the principal gives me an update on how he has been.
And so.....yes....they are still trying to figure out what makes him so upset.
I was told yesterday that when the parents came to pick up the kids at 12+ (kids not joining day care), he started crying and pointing towards the gate.
He wants to go home too.
And it would seem that my son is quite the loner. He doesn't seem to like big crowds and the heightened noise level. Not that he is intimidated by them....he just doesn't like them. Well, I shouldnt be surprised considering he pulls me to get out of Sunday School even. But with a little coaxing to play with his friends he usually manages to stay.
I am not 'weakened' by these 'negative' reports I am hearing. In fact I find it interesting to know my son's character better and how I can help him adjust. Perhaps he is an introvert like me. I hate big crowds too and would seek only 1/2 persons to talk to in a party.
BUT....on the high note, Christopher is pouring out 2-3 word sentences to me at amazing speed. I am not sure if he has picked it up from there or that it was in his brain all this while. I am not sure if it is becuase he is at this age of wanting to learn badly and learning so quickly. But.....
"Eat. eat" (instead of mummm,mummm)
"Sit here. Eat"
"Fall...pain pain" (instead of "pom" and action of hand knocking his head)
And some he has been throwing at me for a loooonnnnngggg while now:
"What is this?"
"I want this."
I am glad Christopher is in school. I don't think adjusting will be a long term issue. It is something he will have to learn to deal with sooner or later. And I think he is NOT too young to learn now.
But then, I come from a school of hard-knocks. The harder something is, the harder I will attempt a go at it. Of course, both of us are working full time without our parents to help.....so we really don't have a choice either.
