So DS goes to an afternoon preschool which he started this past summer. At first he was put in the red group, which is mainly for 3yo. He's 4, but I didn't really care as it was his first school experience. This fall he graduated to blue group for 4yo (and was looking forward to green group in the spring, which is 4yo entering K in the fall). Well, there is this holy terror in the blue group with him who cannot stop pinching him and DS will defend himself. It was making the teachers' jobs harder so they split him up--by putting DS back in the red group. When he walked in and saw his nametag no longer had a blue sticker on it, he was upset. He's not harping on it, but he mentions it everytime he puts his nametag on or takes it off.
I trust his main teacher when she says he does better in the red group. My sisters and I always played with younger children growing up (and dated younger men--dh is 3.5 years my junior). Still, I can't help feeling that DS is the "dumber" of the two and that's why he was put back.
They've promised to put him in green group this spring but I assume Holy Terror will be going with him. Yesterday DS went to the board to get his nametag and HT chased him away by pinching him repeatedly, while HT's AP mom did nothing. I told HT that DS needed to get his tag and to stop pinching him and she dragged HT away, but I got the impression she was upset with me. Hello?!? Am I supposed to let your kid pinch mine?
She is the only other AP parent in DS' age group, too.
We are six: Me : Dh : Ds1('00) Dd('02) Ds2('05) Ds3('08) and, wow! Soon to be seven, Dd2 due 4/23.
