Today is Avery's first day of pre-school.
Recently I've heard so many parents talk about their 2-3 year olds starting pre-school (in the fall, in a few weeks, etc.). I don't mean just referring to daycare as "school," as I do that too, I mean claiming their 2-3 year olds are entering pre-school programs. To be honest, I thought these parents were being a little pretentious. Pre-school doesn't start until they're 4, right? The year right before they start kindergarten.
All summer activities have ended (water day and ice cream day), we paid an exorbitant book fee, and Avery is in the pre-k2 class (they have PK2, PK3, PK4, kindergarten, etc.). So, yeah, I guess all signs indicate pre-school for 2 year olds is a real thing. But I still think the OFFICIAL pre-school is the year before kindergarten.
Ironically, Avery had a meltdown when Rob dropped her off this morning (same class, same teachers). She NEVER does this. No matter the day or whomever drops her off, she happily walks in, pulls a chair out from the table, sits down, and begins chowing down on her breakfast. Today she clung to Rob and cried. He left after a minute, but she was still crying. After he got to work he called to check on her and they said she was sitting on the potty and laughing. So obviously she recovered quickly, but I can't recall more than MAYBE one or two times she has ever done this in the 2 years (and 2 weeks exactly) she has been going there. Anyway, all is well.
