Tiny tots helped him on day one. He remember a new book they read and started a love affair with the series of Pete the Cat. He surprised me with the capability of writing on his own. He was able to hold his pencil and trace on his own which I had never attempted with him. Blew my mind!
He was hesitant when I left but he was understanding and didn't cry when I left him. I was so proud. When I picked him up they told me he did cry for a minute when they took the group to the bathroom and he thought they were taking them out somewhere unknown. The teacher explained the situation and all was resolved.
I on the other hand was able to dote on my daughter a bit one on one without feeling guilty at ignoring him since he's more aware and was able to do more of my work without neglecting them both. I've been able to feel more relaxed and not as strung up as I did with my hands full with both kiddos. Now I feel like a mini vacation twice a week. I love and feel proud of his writing efforts, now he can sing the abc's perfectly after 3 months, 80% of the nap/evening potty training is accident free. He has matured socially, playing well with others and remembering names when he would just look at me when I asked about his classmates.
Tiny tots is great, if you haven't done it, try it. It might help you or help your child. His own experience. I want my children to be well rounded and experienced, this is a small thing to us adults (thought the first day was huge for me), but to them its a huge thing. Take the time breaking them into it a couple of weeks prior for yourself and them.
