Last week, was Jake's first day of Kindergarten. He was excited and so were we. We had a little celebration before with his godmommy, beautiful letters and notes from friends and family and a few little surprises for him.
Time came, we took a obligatory picture of him in front of the door with his backpack and his new outfit.
The bus came and he excitedly gave me a kiss and off he went.
But then the tears came. His and mine! It was hard to let go for both of us. The end of just hanging out and doing every day what we wanted, no schedule, no homework just every day a new adventure. But the beginning of so much more - new friends, new things to learn, new schedule... i think this will be good for us!
2 hours later the phone rang. It was the schools number... i picked up and said "what happened?" The school nurse was on the other line, Jake fell at the playground, he is fine but he won't stop crying for me.
So,Scot picked him up. 1st Day of Kindergarten a flop.
But now we are on day 5 and he loves it. Everyday he comes home and declares it "the bestest day in history"
This morning he got up with the wrong foot... trying to cheer him up I mentioned it is another bestest day because it is Kindergarten. He looked at me all serious and said
"I am done with Kindergarten! My teacher talks a lot and gives me a headache!"
You can never win with Jakey!
