Popped to the post office and walked home, just put the brakes on the pushchair... 'Is that my mobile ringing? OMG it's Lady Gaga!' (Roo's ringtone... that's a different story)
School: Hello, is that Roo's Mum?
School: Hello it's Mrs L, Roo is upset, I asked if it was about her Granny (I told them yesterday about my mum moving and that she might be upset) but she said no, she misses you
Me: I think she is worried that everyone is leaving her
School: Girls are like that, did you want to speak to her?
Me: Please... Hello darling, are you ok?
Roo: NO!!! (cue lots of tears)
Me: What's wrong?
Roo: I just miss you soooo much
Me: Oh baby girl, I'll see you at story cafe this afternoon
Roo: (mumbles but can't understand due to the tears)
Me: Can I speak to Mrs L... Do you want me to come pick her up?
School: I'm sure she'll be ok
Me: I did tell her I was coming to story cafe this afternoon
School: (Mrs L explaining to Roo that mummy was coming to story cafe) She seems to have calmed down now, I'll ring you if there are anymore problems
Me: Thank you
I hung up and felt awful, my poor baby girl is heart broken and thinks that everyone is leaving her. Since I told her about her Granny on Thursday evening she has been clingy and quiet. It's hitting her so hard and I don't know how to make it better for her.
So when I got to story cafe this afternoon I gave her a sticker to say well done for staying at school and I have told her that she will get one everyday she stays at school and does not ring mummy. Fingers crossed that this will work for the short term
