What happens in PRESCHOOL stays in PRESCHOOL

Even though, what happens in preschool stays in preschool, I was able to glean a little information from my children after their first day of school.
Laci left me with a smile and greeted me the same.  She said that she had a fun time "making friends."  Then, she leaned in and whispered "I played with Horsies the WHOLE time!"  I think she thought she had gotten away with something there.  She also let me know that a "other girl cried a lot."  But, she made sure I understood that she didn't cry, just a "other girl."
Leyton was quite concerned this morning while we were getting ready to leave.  Phrases like "today you're gonna leave me" and "you gonna pick me up, right?"  were common.  When we arrived, I saw a melt-down coming, but excused myself quickly at the drop off (I didn't want to witness it and knew that would only prolong things if I stuck around to console him).  When I came back to pick him up, he was fine.  The teacher said he cried for a little while, but was fine.  His take on the first day of school was "people make messes."  I asked him if HE made a mess too, "no I just played."
Seth wasted no time and no kisses rushing to meet his "new friends."  He was VERY excited to leave I noticed when I arrived to pick them back up.  Chanted "Time to go home! Time to go home!"  Sorry Seth, you've got many long years to experience that thing we all call "school."  I did ask him if he made some new friends.  He answered me briefly with a "yeah a teacher named Candace."  Oh I see.
I guess they will spare me the other details.  After all, what happens in preschool stays in preschool.  I better get use to that!
