For the record, our littlest — Goblin 6 — is still giving us a hard time with school. She cries all the way there, all the way inside, until I leave the building…then she quiets and plays the day away. This is still better than Goblin 1 who cried and moped in the classroom corner, all day, for a solid 2 weeks.
Ugh…I feel like a terrible mama leaving any kid in tears like that…but having the teachers laugh at us because Goblin 6 is perfectly fine when I leave does make me feel better.
Such is life.
Keep on parenting, parents. We got this.
