RaeAnne's first day at new school

Today is RaeAnne's first day at Elfa CC. Hubby and I brought her over at 8+am cos breakfast is at 830am and Filamie doesn't know the way to the school yet. When we reached, Raeanne was happily exploring the toys and the role play area. She wasn't interested in the peanut butter sandwich and soya bean milk breakfast though. We were introduced to her teachers and her principal Mrs Cynthia also touched base with us. At first it was a bit messy cos the classrooms all open concept and the music room was playing a concert performance CD so RaeAnne was watching it there with all the other kids while RaeAnne's classmates were still having breakfast. But they finally broke up into their classes and to the indoor playground at 930am. So hubby and I took the chance to leave during that time.

When we went to pick her up close to 12 noon, her form teacher Teacher Helen that Raeanne did well for the first day. She finished half a bowl of rice with braised chicken and choy sim and told the teacher twice that she needs to shh shh. The same teacher already told that RaeAnne will be fine in the morning when she saw RaeAnne running around playing and touching the toys. She said kids who can play on their own are ok and can adapt fast. Oh well, she was ok until she saw us and nearly cried but luckily I distracted her cos we brought Mei Mei to fetch her as well and she was an instant hit among the students, teachers and principal. :)

Raelynn refused to latch on this morning and tonight. Don't know if it's because she is too sleepy from the cold/flu med or because she is trying to self wean. Had to let her sleep at 830pm then latched her when she was asleep. So ironical, cos usually I had to do that for bottle feeding of EBM or FM but never had to 'trick' a baby to latch. So sad. Maybe my BF days are ending soon. :(
