Applying for preschools in NYC is, I think, worse than college. I mean its preschool for Gods sake and the thought of actually not getting into a certain one, is just bullshit to me. For next year, we applied to my fav three schools, one told us there’s no room, next one – we can only go afternoon hours as opposed to morning, and third- haven’t heard back yet. There’s always alternative schools we can get into, but I wanted a place where he will be for the next two years not just one. Which brings me to this book “Llama Llama Misses Mama”. This adorable story helped Ryder understand the separation between him and I. Also that “mama” will always come back when the day is through. If your child is starting school I 100% recommend this book.
