How in the world is it time for school already???
My sweet little boy looked way too young to leave in a room with random people I do not know. I really didn't expect to have any problems at all with dropping him off today because he already went to camp this summer and I happily dropped him off and went on with the day. However, I was barely making it from moment to moment, right in the middle of morning sickness. Without that distraction, today was harder. And, it seems much more permanent. I knew camp was only a week where this is the beginning of his school days. He's only going two days a week so this is probably a little melodramatic. And he has been asking to go to school for months. He was so excited to go and all the way there talked about inviting all his new friends to his birthday party. We went on Tuesday for meet the teacher and I had explained that he wouldn't be staying, we were just going to go in, play, and leave together. So today when we pulled in the parking lot, he asked, "Are you going to leave me here today, Mommy?" Ugh. He meant it with excitement, but the question made me want to turn the car around. I am so glad he's happy about going because if he were apprehensive or worse, crying, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have made him stay. I'm the only one struggling with this, because Harris and Walker both think it's awesome. Walker didn't ask for his brother once and seemed excited to have both me and the toys all to himself.
And just so you'll apprreciate the normalcy of the picture above, here are the first few I got.
