It was a really great night. Really great.
*Clarification: The pre-school was ok, but the girls were not having ANY of that "mama will be right back" spiel. The teachers, administrator, and director tried every trick in the book to calm their hysterical crying/not breathing. After 30 minutes (with no progress) I "returned" (from sitting in the office where they couldn't see me) and spent the rest of the morning in the classroom. We'll try again on Wednesday and Friday with some different tactics. If there isn't any progress by end of Friday's session, well I just don't know... those preschool chairs just aren't made for 39-year-old butts.
