The Princess had a great day - she loves her new school, her teacher and made a friend.
Little man C had a great day - he made a friend in the first 5 minutes and ran off to play... to leave his twin alone. L cried for 2 hours, after which the school asked me to send his nanny over. So Lucy spent half the day there and the Princess the afternoon with him. This morning it was much the same - heaps of crying.
In hindsight, I made a mistake not to just keep them at school last year after they spent the 2 days there. But I do know that he will stop crying, that he will start liking it there. It is just going to take time. And it is so hard for me to see this. My consolation is that he is possibly at the best place to handle this - the school has been wonderful - flexible and supportive. Allowing Lucy there, and the Princess in the afternoon - even giving them lunch. For that I am so grateful.
