PARENTING & ADJUSTING TO PRE-K IS HARD!

I took little man to the park last night! We chased each other and played hide and sneak and went down the slides together. 😉. Great evening for the most part.

Than bath time came and it was awful. 😭😭😭😭. He 💔 my heart and left me tears because he was screaming and crying that no one loves him anymore and that he is all alone. What the what!?!?!?? 😬😱

Oh my ya'll... I can't!! I asked him why he felt that way and he said no one likes me at school... They are mean to me... They aren't kind... I have no one... Because no one loves me there. 😱😱😱😱😱😱

I don't know where this is coming from because he has been all smiles and sharing about his day and he seems to have good ones. 🤔

I scooped him up and told him to never say no one loves him because that isn't true... I told him he was my everything and that mommy and daddy loved him sooooooo much and named off his family members to say he has a family who will always love him.

I told him he will have to talk to the kids at school and become friends with them. I am not sure he is doing this... He thought his Gateway friends would be there and he is devastated that they are not... So I think he feels lonely... BUT he is sooo outgoing that this is surprising me. It is also crushing my heart.💔

He ended up sleeping with me last night... He said when he goes to bed he will be all alone again. Nope... Can't have that so I went to bed at 8:30 last night and held him tight and told him multiple times I love him.

I mean I tell this kid I love him so much people might think I am crazy... I give him so many kisses and hugs it is sickening. Lol. 😜

Sooo I am heartbroken this morning... I don't know what to think... Was he for real or just trying to get extra snuggles or is he legitimately having issues???🤔

One thing I don't like is that I don't get a report on him daily. I hate that... I have no idea how he does and I guess that is a school thing and I am used to a daycare thing.

Whew this is hard my peeps. 😞😞

Did your kids ever do this?

What else can I do?

(The amount of LOVE and SUPPORT I got from this post on Facebook helped so much - I am not alone in this and apparently EVERY child experiences this when they go to Pre-K...still doesn't make this any easier, but pray that Shawn adjusts quickly and starts becoming his NORMAL self in the fact that he is outgoing, fun, and a blessing to be around.  Other kids need to see this side of him...I don't want him to become closed off or shut down because of this transition.)
