When did this kid get so big?! It seems like just yesterday he was my little Captain Crankypants, my baby boy I could fit on one arm.
He was so excited this morning and already didn't want us to embarrass him. He was all about taking photos at home, but no sir, not at school. He told us last night that we couldn't take his picture or give him a hug at school. I totally didn't expect that until a couple years from now. I did manage to get a photo of him at school, but not in front of his classroom. Only where no one could see him and he wasn't happy about it.
Just like he did his first day of preschool, he took his teacher's hand and walked on up to his classmates, out into the world. He didn't even say goodbye. I wanted to stay for a bit, but Alan told me it's time to go, to let him go.
You better believe I cried my eyes out as soon as he was out of sight. And all the way to the car and to take Cecily to daycare. I'm completely useless at work today because he's all I can think about. What I would give to be a fly on the wall in his classroom. Is he having a good day? Is he making friends? How is his teacher? I can't wait to go pick him up and hear all about his first day. Hopefully. He doesn't usually tell us what all he does in school during the day. I have been stalking his class website all day in the hopes that his teacher will post what they've been up to. I know that that probably won't happen the first day, but I can dream, right?
Today has been a very emotional day for me and I'm just counting down to 5 so I can pick up my boy. Because even though he's a big kindergartener now, he is still my baby.
