Kristórfer the litle preschool boy!

Last week Kristófer started his first preschool day. He is only 6 months and it feel’s so strange taking him there, at first I was really nervous because he is so little and I just wanted to stay home with him for few more months, but school is back on and we have to finish these two years we have left so I don’t have a choice but to take him.

The kids in his class are from 10 months so he is the youngest. He has this great woman named Gréta that takes care of him that is specialized in children’s development and he loves her already so I don’t feel so bad anymore. He has started eating all kinds of food even bred and I feel he has grown a few months’ since he started going to preschool. His physical therapist also comes to the preschool to exercise with him so when I pick him up and we go home I can just be his mom and nothing else and that I love. Before I always felt bad that I was not training him enough or we did not do this and that….and I didn’t enjoy being his mom as much as I do now. Also they use sign language all the time, when they sing, read and when they talk to each other and I love that, Kristófer can then talk to the other children later on as they all will know the signs This school is not only for kids with special needs, but there is one other boy there who has down syndrome and he is 3 years old and hopefully him and Kristófer will become friends later on.

And another thing….before Kristófer was so sensitive about other children talking or crying that he started to scream and he would not stop until he would turn red and blue….now he’s gotten used to that cause of the other kids at his school that I can now take him everywhere without worrying that he would go bananas!

Well I just wanted to share this with you guys…..hard to let your child go so little to preschool even though I know this will only do good for him!



  1. it is really hard. but we are lucky to have such kind people taking care of them:)- thanks for the update on your little man:) - really cute picture:)

  2. What a big step and it sounds like it is going great! Hurray!

  3. You are so lucky to have such wonderful childcare for Kristófer. And what a big beautiful smile he has in that picture.

  4. That sounds like a beautiful school. Still hard to leave him, but at least you can be assured that Kristofer is in good hands, and it helps to know that he is happy there.
