number 3 goes to his 1st day of school
we started off the morning TOTALLY FIRED UP about school and Mrs Debbie!
backpack (aka tote big enough to carry entirely too much stuff daily) - check
batman lunchbox (compliments of brother- as he thought he needed new one this yr) -check
nap mat (was unsure how this would go- but he did actually rest and even sleep)- check
change of clothes - check
pasey and nitenite (for naptime only) - check
etc etc - check
can't you sense the excitement in these 2 pics?
now- what about this one?
excitement - ummm, no!
lots of unsure feelings- ummm- yes!
no really. he didn't cry about the whole school idea. just felt some concern!
and how did his 1st day go?
he only cried a bit about the nap mat... but hey, give the kid a break, he's never even seen a nap mat before. and 3 cheers for him that he managed to stay on it and sleep for an hour.
on a side note- the sleeping for an hour doesn't cut it. he normally sleeps 2-3 hr. there was a bit too many emotions displayed as the afternoon wore on. what's a mom to do?
no really. it was a great day for him and me:) it's been a long time since i had a slew of hours all to myself. wow- how relaxing!
