Producer Tracey’s About To Enroll Her Daughter, Ella, In Pre-School…In 15 Minute Increments. Too Bad The Whole Morning Was Traumatic!

Producer Tracey’s About To Enroll Her Daughter, Ella, In Pre-School…In 15 Minute Increments. Too Bad The Whole Morning Was Traumatic!

Producer Tracey’s daughter, Ella, is about to start pre-school – and this means being away from her parents for really large chunks of time for the first time. So, Tracey’s devised a ‘perfect’ plan to transition Ella into the world of finger paint, building blocks and naptime – a 15 minute incremented schedule. So day 1, Tracey would leave Ella for 30 minutes, then pick her up. Day 2 would be for 45 minutes, Day 3 would be an hour, and so on, until they hit the three hour time span.

While Producer Tracey thinks this will be perfect in allowing Ella (ok, let’s face it – and her mom) to transition smoothly into a new environment, not everyone is buying it…

Well, on Ella’s first day, the unthinkable happened (of course). Not only did Ella throw an upset fit when her mom left her, but Tracey’s car battery died, stranding her 20 minutes away! And to end an already perfect morning, she and her husband wrapped it up by hiding in the woods outside of the school, watching her daughter play on the playground.
