Already posted this in the Life in Cancun Forum, but in case some of you don't check that section I'll post it here too. Our daughter Dani's first school day was a rainy one but she was very excited to wear her uniform and new shoes, we'd been talking to her about school all weekend. She seemed very proud as she walked down the path to the car, pulling her school bag behind her and clutching her teddy. Once we got to the school she was fine until she suddenly realised that we weren't going in with her. Her face changed to one of fear and she started crying. Not much we could do other than let the teacher pick her up and walk away with her into the classroom. We went back home and spent a very long hour and a half in an unusual kind of silence before returning to pick her up again. We had a little chat with the teacher and it seemed she cried almost the whole time, bless her. She soon recovered back to her normal happy self though once we picked her up. We asked her before she went to bed tonight if she was looking forward to school again tomorrow, to meet all her friends and see her teacher Miss Margarita "No gracias" was her reply. Hoping tomorrow is not so traumatic for her, and us.
