A request

School started two weeks ago.

Not just a new adjustment for my babies. (One just started in Kindergarten, and the other in an all day PreK class) But I am back to teaching again after 5 1/2 years off.

I'm not gonna lie, it has been EXTREMELY difficult. Hard to keep the house in order, hard to keep going when I get home, hard to wake up in the morning. (Thank you Jesus for my wonderful helpmate, Mr Toddlerwhisperer)

What's made it super difficult is that my littlest, the one I thought would have the easiest time adjusting is falling apart. Every morning the first week, she begged me to keep her home, screaming all the way to her class that she hated school and didn't want me to leave. It's been awful. The second week was a little better. She says she doesn't want to go to school, throws a HUMONGOUS fit when we get there, but moments after I leave, she's fine. She's participating, has friends, and dare I say, has fun.

I have to deal with all that prior to walking an eighth of a mile up to my classroom moments before the bell rings to start my day. It is wearing. I'm sweaty, stressed and questioning my decision to put her in PreK. I need your prayers.

Here's how you can pray specifically:
*pray my Little has a great attitude before school
*pray Mr T and I have wisdom as to how to prepare her for the day

Thanks so much.

  1. Hi Jenny! As a former preschool teacher for over 10 years I can assure it does get better! However, as a mom I think it would the hardest thing to drop your little girlie off screaming and crying! I have been praying for you and for your little girlie to love and want to go to school! I hope you and your family are adjusting and things are getting better!

  2. I'm just getting around to finishing making my rounds through the link-up posts. Oh! I can absolutely understand the adjustment issues. I will pray for each of you guys. Hang in there, friend!
