So we’ve been having a difficult time convincing CJ that he’ll have fun at school, let alone simply going to our church’s nursery during service is a constant adventure in itself. We’ve tried to bribe him with everything under the sun from smoothies and toys, to trips to Sesame Place, but to no avail. Then recently, Grace fell upon an article written by a mother who had a similar experience and created a book for her child to help him get over his fear of school.
Grace visited Barnes & Noble, but they didn’t have anything worthy of purchasing, so Grace took it upon herself to craft a short story about our son going to school.
She created the book in less than a day and I think she did an amazing job in trying to help prepare CJ for his first day of orientation for daycare tomorrow. As she read it to CJ for the first time, it struck a chord in him when she got to the part of mommy coming back for him. We know he’s going to cry a lot, but we’re praying that God will change his heart and learn to trust that we love him and we’ll always return for him.
