Emily and her funny smile..
This is Emily from this morning..just a few minutes before we left for school. She does this smile, when she is being silly, smiling for a picture..she will say "cheese" but hold on the word "cheese" so it sounds like "cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese" even long after the picture is taken.. she is my funny little girl..
You would think she was in good spirits for her second day of school? She looks ready and excited. And she was. In the car, the walk into school.. the walk down the hallway. Then, we got to the classroon, and the switch was flipped. She did not want to go in. She wanted me and only me. The teacher had to pry her off of me again.. I had to walk down the hall, hearing her pitiful cries..
it took everything in me to keep on walking. and I did. And I made it through the next 4 hours fine, and I didn't cry. In fact, I kept myself busy, so busy, that I had to run out of the door, when it was very near time to pick her up, as not to be late.
And I wasn't late. And Emily was in her class, just as happy as can be. Or so it seemed. Turns out, she only joined her class at lunchtime.. she spend the first 2 hours, sitting with the director of the school, refusing to go to her class.
Pitiful. Just pitiful. Just sitting there, literally doing nothing. She didn't want to go to class, so she'd rather just sit there. and do nothing.
She could at least be home doing something.
I need Tuesday to go differently. please say it will.
