Pre-school update: Today's drop-off, about three "I don't want to go to school's" and about five tears on actual leave-taking. Still no fun, but a tiny bit better. And she's starting to learn the routine -- when Kavi finished breakfast, she stood up and said very firmly, "It's time to go to school." So that's something.
Of course, tomorrow is Saturday, so that's going to throw the whole thing off again. Sigh.
