Joseph's First Day of School


Isn't he handsome? My little pre-schooler off to school for the first time ever. Joseph's my shy, sensitive momma's boy and I prepared myself for the worst on that first morning. Darren dropped him off with me and I was worried Joseph would insist on one of us staying the whole time and clinging to my leg, or maybe tears would fall and I would have to take him home to avoid disruption of the entire class. But instead, it couldn't have gone better. He hid his face when his teacher first spoke to him, and then after he found a toy he liked, he just snapped out of it. He started chatting up a storm with her and talking to his friend, George who is also in his class. When I picked him up, he talked my ear off the whole way home about what they did and how much he loved it. His words: "Mommy, I love love love school! You need to take me back on Friday, okay?" He did burst into tears the second day when I picked him up: "I don't want to go home yet!" This is going to be a very good thing.

I'm so glad it was a good experience. I know he's going to be the smartest kid in his class!
