Tomorrow, we go for the EPC language assessment, followed 2 hours later by a CAIS "playdate." I'm not sure how it happened, but somehow I scheduled the EPC language assessment AND 4 private school kindergarten assessments all in the same week. Potential parental stress pales in comparison to how my quiet 4-year-old going to feel over the next week, heading into 5 unfamiliar situations with strangers and no parent in sight.
This is the child whom I had to carry in my arms to our first kindergarten visit, with the weak assurance of "It'll be fun! You'll get to make a necklace." After insisting that it wasn't going to be fun, said child emerged with a beaded necklace, a drawing and a solemn look that said, "I held it together, Mom, for this intimidating experience that YOU made me do."
Fast-forward a month. "Why do we have to go to another school? I like the school we went to last time. It was fun."
It was??? "What did you like about it?" I asked.
"We got to play."
Some parents promise their kids ice cream after each kindergarten visit, and I've decided that my slow-to-warm-up kid deserves a reward for braving it out. Since I don't know of any ice cream parlors near EPC, I'm settling for a visit to the main library between the EPC and CAIS assessments, with a promise to check out as many Captain Underpants books as we can carry. Who knows, maybe in another month I'll be getting requests to go on more kindergarten visits.
