Gilbert officially starts 'school' next week. In preparation Little Man has begun his 'transition'. His teacher did a home visit last week and this week and part of last he has been going to Montessori for a few hours each day to begin acclimating to his surroundings and becoming comfortable with his teacher and aides.

The transition is rocking Little Man's world. A few weeks ago, Gilbert began his attachment phase. He's become shy around new people and even more careful in new surroundings. Always the observer first, participant second, he has been reluctant to jump in with the other kids. His class has 15-24 months olds. He is one of the younger students so the kids are talking and moving fast around him.

The past few days when I've got home from work, Gilbert has been exhausted. We typically have dinner around 6:30, bath at 7, lights out between 7:30 and 8pm. By 6pm today is was eye rubs and get me to bed. I imagine it will be this way even more so once he is going full days!
