First day over!

We got to the nursery at 8 o’clock this morning. Because there is no parking there, and it was the first day, we parked at a nearby AMPM We had so much stuff to take, luckily, Yusuke took a half day off to help me We have permission usually from the police to drop off and leave the car on the road, but only for a short time. When we got there, in Hannah’s room there were older children in there too (about 4 or 5 years old). They were all very hyper and quite boisterous – mostly boysげっそりexclamation ×2 Hannah was a bit overwhelmed by this and started to cry泣き顔 It turns out that because Hannah’s classroom is so big, the older children who get dropped off before 8:30-9:00, hang out in their classroom too. We had some odd questions from the boys, such as, “why is there a foreigner here” (me), comments like “listen, English, ha ha ha!” and the funniest one directed at Yusuke and I was, “which one of you gave birth to her?”あせあせ失恋 I’m not sure if he was trying to figure out which nationality Hannah was, or if he was just unsure about how bodies workわーい(嬉しい顔)

Anyway, we stayed there for a while, and things were a lot calmer once the bigger children had gone. Hannah seemed to loosen up a lot, and started playing. We stayed for a while, and then said goodbye. At first, she said, “bye bye”, but as she watched us walk away, she started to cry again.

When we came to pick her up a couple of hours later, she was sitting singing and dancing with the other children and looked as if she was having a great time. I was really happy that she seemed to have settled down. She gave me a little strawberry (hmm, I really thought it was a tomato) for mother’s day that she had put some fingerprints on. It was my first present from Hannah, so I was really touchedハート達(複数ハート) She had eaten all of her snack there, so that was a good sign, although she loves to eat anywayわーい(嬉しい顔)exclamation

After we got home, she was quite naughty. I suppose a change in her routine is going to be a bit disruptive at first, but hopefully things will get better and she will start having a good time when it becomes more regular. I think I was more upset than she was! For a while after we got back I was really tearful涙

Tomorrow she will go for a couple of hours again, and then start eating lunch the day after that, and take it from there.
