I was planning on posting a review and contest today. That was the plan at least.
But, something happened at the preschool yesterday. As I write this, I still don’t know what exactly. We’ll be trying to find out this morning.
Here’s what I do know:
- my child has two scratches on her stomach and the area was still red at bath-time
- she says the teacher pushed her
- this was only her second day there
Scratches, cuts, bruises, and such happen. I know this. But, a scratch on her stomach doesn’t just happen from falling on the playground. And, I should have gotten a report about it when I picked her up.
Granted…I’m a mess. I already had some reservations about preschool.
This doesn’t help.
And I can’t help but think, “I want to drop everything and be home with her so I can protect her.” Of course, that would mean we’d live in our car or something.
I don’t even know what else to say. Forgive the crappy post.
My heart is just in pieces right now.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions and comments wondering how everything turned out. I even got a complaint that I left you all hanging and didn’t post a follow-up. My apologies.
We talked with the school, teachers, assistant director, etc. They all helped try to figure out what happened and how the scratches came about. Unfortunately, just like us, they didn’t know either. But, they did try to help and they seemed genuine.
In the end, my baby girl didn’t seem sad or scared about being there. Even the next day after the incident, she was fine to stay at school and seemed happy when I picked her up.
So, for now, we’re all ok. Obviously, we’ve got an extra eye on her and just the mere fact that we brought the incident up shows the school that we’re aware of her.
Thank you ALL for your concerns.
