Today is Ryan's first day of kindergarten. I can't believe my baby is in kindergarten!
He woke up early, excited, couldn't sleep. Mommy, is it time to go yet? Mommy, I am a big boy today! Mommy, can we go now?!
I had to drop Matthew off at his door a few minutes early so Ryan and I could get around the school to his door in time. Matthew had a few tears but we have been practicing deep breathing (blowing out the candles) and that helped. I told him he could do this, that his friends were right there with him, turned and left.
Ryan got to his door and lined up like he had been prepped. The teacher came out a minute later and took them inside. Ryan turned to me, smiled, waved and said Bye Mommy!
And that is what it is supposed to be like.
