Pre-School Drop Out

...no graduation day for you,
Pre-school drop out,
flunked coloring
and ate the glue.

We just may have one on our hands soon. A Pre-school Drop Out.

Pre-school was a total bust today. Bup does great during free play but once it's circle time....look out!
"I don't like YOU!"
"I'm telling on YOU!"
Throw in a little kick or pinch, lying on the carpet, sneaking away on his knees, requesting a big time out rather than sitting for story time, hitting a little friend while putting shoes on to leave....
Yup. Banner day at pre-school
Oh, did I mention breaking his glasses and throwing them across the room while in a time out?

And then in the car on the way home, I hear this little voice from the back seat singing, "Tidy up, Tiiiiidy UP, Everybody tidy up."

Well.....I'm at a loss what to do.

In the words of the literary giant, Robert Munsch,
"This kid is driving me crazy!"


  1. I still think a hiatus will help him realize he might just miss those teachers and others in the class! But I think you need to tell him why he isn't going. Does that sound cruel????


  2. Not cruel Miss Me....but I wonder if he would even care?
    Mrs.Johnson feels he will do better after surgery, when I'm not there and he's there on a regular basis. I almost hate to try it and put the teachers through the adjustment period!

  3. I think all of this is more difficult when you're 3 (rather than 4).
    But I would agree, he'll probably be an angel when you're not there!

    Or maybe that's just my kids...
