The beginning of the school year was a little challenging for Annika. She had a difficult time when I would drop her off with her class in the moorings. This would only last a few minutes, if that, and then she was fine. But watching her be so sad and anxious was breaking my heart. A few weeks before she found these light up shoes she wanted and I didn't get them for her. So I told her we could go get them if it would help her in the mornings. Yes. A bribe. I'm not above it! It worked! She loved (still does) her shoes and since that first week we have had no tears and she is having a great time! Love this little girl so much and so glad to see her settling in and having fun!
