Nursery School & Swimming Setbacks!
Although nursery school started out without any problems, the last two trips have been a lot worse. Parker has been REALLY sad when I try to drop him off and last Thursday they actually called us at home to come and see him because he was so miserable! So yesterday I sat in the back of the class while he played, and I'm going to do the same thing tomorrow. Hopefully if I do this a few times, he'll gradually see that it's okay and won't have a meltdown when I go to leave. The strange thing is that he was never a crier, even as a little baby, and now he cries all the time. Well, not all the time, but to go from nothing to something is kind of an adjustment for everyone, so it's been an interesting process so far. He also really seems to hate swimming lessons (he's supposed to go in the pool by himself while we watch from the side) but so far it's been mostly him screaming that he doesn't want to go in the pool and us trying to keep him calm. Maybe the new baby is affecting him more than we initially thought?
