When I took him to his first day he told me that I could just drop him off. Clearly, I couldn’t handle that so I walked him to his class meeting area and waited through the morning announcements and even walked with him to his classroom. He was eager to start the year and I was feeling both the excitement and a bit of sadness as my first baby became even more independent. He waved goodbye and I got into my car, cried and bit and then went to greet my own classroom of eager students (180 of them to be exact).
I know it is good for him. I LOVE his school, I LOVE his teacher and I LOVE how much he values school. He is just growing too fast and I need to take it all in. I mean look at that face, I swear I still see a tiny baby boy in there.
Happy first week of school buddy! We are so proud of you!
