Just another day in paradise...

Wednesday, September 3, 2008


So Jackson started preschool today. I've been a bit sad as my baby isn't a baby anymore and don't feel like loosening the apron strings just yet. How I played it out in my mind: We would walk down the sidewalk (thankfully it's only a few houses away) hand in hand and I would tell him about all the great things he would learn. Then when we would arrive, he would be clinging to me and asking to go home and I would reassure him that it will be fun and he'll make some new friends and then give him a big kiss and leave, hoping his new teacher can handle his sadness.

Ummm, No. As soon as I opened our front door, he tore down the sidewalk and arrived there minutes before I did. I had to tackle him to get a picture of his first day before he ran into his class and disappeared. I went in and interrupted his immediate find of the toys to make sure he knew where the bathroom was and tell him to listen to his teacher. I don't think he even knew I was there. The nerve... I wonder if Miss Angie will be able to handle my sadness!

Oh he's a big boy now, huh!? I bet that was hard for you. It's good though, that he was excited, and not dreading school....

My youngest son Ben did this to me too. He was so excited to go to school I ceased to exist the moment he entered the school doors. The only saving grace was that he was excited to see me when I picked him up from school.
