Annabel, however, did not like it nearly as much as her first day of school last year. The drop-off was hard on Mom as Annabel cried real tears and screamed "Momma, Momma" while reaching out for me. I could hear her wailing as I got Caroline settled in her room far down the hallway. I made the mistake of returning to the scene of the abandonment and the wailing intensified. When Scott picked her up, she was having a great time in the gym with the gigantic exercise balls. When I dropped her off yesterday, she immediately started climbing on the playhouse and slide, and then stole a chicken nugget from another kid's lunch bin in the fridge. Completely back to being Annabel! So here's a second day of school picture.
