Here is a little blurb of what I posted last year at this time, when Sam had his first day of Kindergarten.
I did kind of hate for it all to begin the 13 years of school, just to get to college... Even though all kids are different I have been down this path three times already, and I know that the time you get to yourself while they are at school doesn't come without a price... homework, schedules, not to mention all the big boy behavior that comes from peers... My sister laughs because he has the personality of a 50 year old woman in a 6 year old boy.. I know its not natural, but he is so sweet! He also has imaginary friends, that will probably be replaced with real ones..no doubt he will blame his bad behavior on them now instead of Pusher and Guester his makebelive buddies.. I guess we all grow up. My playmate was Blummy. Wonder what he's doing these days, now that the boys are gone I might need someone to talk too ??
My mom got Sam off to school yesterday, he had to be on the bus at 7:20 am. I am trying not to make the same mistake I did the first 3 times around by taking him to school everyday...
That turned out to be a good thing yesterday as Grandma doesn't drive and although she is small, she's too big for Sam to carry and it is too far for her to walk!! He totally adores Grandma and visa a versa, he is always touching her hand or her neck and asking about the wrinkles as if they must hurt... One day he said to me, "I wish Grandma didn't have so many wrinkles.." Evidently he hasn't looked close at his mom!
Wrinkled or not she got him off to school like a pro.. I felt kind of sad that I wasn't there and then Dusty met him when the bus brought him home because I was taking Grandma and Grandpa home... Poor mom... Not that I haven't done this first day of school thing about a hundred times, but it is special every time.
That's why I decided today would be the first day and I took pictures like I didn't know the difference. I wonder if the driver thought I was "off".
And yes that is a delicious and nutritious pop tart... It HAS been proven you know that kids who eat a healthy breakfast do better in school... Guess we will have to work on that.. It would be nice if he actually graduates from high school someday.
I like to think he is worried that I will be lonely with him gone all day, in this shot... He's more likely thinking.... Oh, how much longer until the bus comes?Here he is saying YIPEEE! I'm on my own!
See ya Mom!
