We're in total "mommy don't leave me" tantum mode. She had 3 wonderful weeks of preschool (little/no tears) and 2 really awful days of MOPS (absolute meltdown the entire 2 hours). But this morning, on week 4 of preschool, she totally lost it before I even left. I made the mistake of coming in the room to take off her jacket and talk to the teacher. She was grabbing my hair/shirt and bawling. I could hear her screaming 5 minutes after I left (went to speak to the director). I saw her teacher bring her out to give her some 1-on-1 time. I forced myself to RUN to my car so I wouldn't make things worse.
What the heck can I do? It kills me to see her so upset, but I know she'll be ok. And honestly, I'm totally embarrassed. It's like I've done something wrong that my child is so totally upset when I leave her. I feel like she's a burden in her class. When will this pass?
