The Big Day!

Oh my word! It happened.

The first day of SCHOOL!

I woke my BABY up and took him to SCHOOL!!


I didn't cry at all. Of course, J and my Mother-in-Law were also in the car so I didn't want to cry in front of them. Haha. I held it together.

After I dropped him off I came home, made a shopping list and went to Walmart. Alone. As I wandered through the isles of Walmart, in the middle of the morning, Alone, I began to think. Think about my BABY off at school. Think about how he wouldn't be home with me during the day all the time anymore. I missed him.

I started to feel some anxiety and also a little panicky. I had to slow down and take some deep breaths. A panic attack in the middle of Walmart, not really what I needed.

I managed to make it through just fine though. I came home and made Kid a cake. Green inside and out. Green is his Favorite color! I had intended to make it in the shape of a crayon but I ran out of time.

He had a blast! The first thing he said to me when I picked him up was "I painted!" :)

I heard all about the rest of the day. Kids and playing outside, swinging on the swings, eating lunch, Ms. Hanna (Teacher), painting, reading books. I'm so glad he had a great time!

Now, we just have to do this for nine more months! I'll be used to getting up early by then, right?

I'm glad he had such a great time on his first day! And it sounds like you did well. Distraction is the key to so many tough days...
