Charlotte and I were talking at bedtime, and she said she's a little scared about starting preschool tomorrow. "Why?" I asked. "What are you scared about?"
"Well," she said. "I'm scared that what if I am dressing up and I dress up like a scary monster and all the kids run away and I'm a scary pirate and I say 'Argh!' and all the kids hide?"
"You could try not dressing up like a scary monster. Like, maybe try to think if what you are going to do or say might be scary to kids, so then don't do it," I suggested unhelpfully.
"What if I go to the dress up clothes and put on a scary bear costume and growl at kids? And then they all run away and get in their cars and go home and then the teacher comes and it's just one kid, and I push back my bear hood and she says, 'Where is my class? Where are all the kids?' and I just say, 'I don't know?'"
Ummm.....I think someone is a little nervous about making friends tomorrow.
