Reagan is having a bit of an adjustment period at kindergarten. It's understandable since I am a stay-at-home mom; she's never been away from me like this. She's never had to pay attention or sit still for so long and for so many days in a row. She came home last week with several notes about her behavior-from the weird to the normal 5 year old things.
But I think today took the prize. Today when I picked Reagan up from school, the teacher told me that she is having a very hard time sitting still. During story time she got so tired that she decided to do yoga. Her teacher said she was doing a little upward facing dog pose. Well, we do yoga a lot here in the Wilhelmsen house, so that I could understand. I very calmly told Reagan, "Honey, we don't do yoga during story time." And then the teacher said that during Board-instruction time Reagan was so restless that she put her legs out. As the teacher turned around she tripped over Reagan's outstretched legs. Thankfully the teacher did not fall on Reagan, but she was pretty annoyed that she tripped over a child.
So, Reagan is not all the excited about school. I keep praying that this is just a phase and that she'll get used to it. I think she enjoys it once she's there, but I do hope these behavioral things clear up as she acclimates to the school day. At least I hope the tripping of teachers is over.
