Lisa, I could have written you post! I so feel your pain. Austin, who will be 2 this month, is also going thru this. One week, he'll do fine at drop off, the next week it's horrible. This morning alone, he screamed and was clinging to me and one of the teachers had to physically take him from me so I could leave. I always try to stay around a few minutes to help him calm down, but this morning, there was no having that. He just didn't want to stay. I'm hoping, along with you, that this phase doesn't last much longer.
