First day of big girl school

Baby Girl started school today. I thought I would be teary eyed when I dropped her off, but it ended up that most of us were just fine. The whole family went to drop her off. We got in the room put her bags in the locker, and she sat at her desk to color. I stood there thinking, I want to stay, but what can I do but stand and stare at her. She was fine and said bye mom. So we all left and I thought that was it? That was what I have been working myself up for? LOL

When we got home baby boy ended up very clingy and needy. He would not leave my side. He wanted to hold my hand or be in my lap. He really missed his sis-sis. He asked me if we could go to the "Ice cream store" for a special treat, so I took him.

I will say that I really enjoyed our outing. I realized with the closeness of age of the two kiddos, I have had very little time to enjoy each one individually. Baby girl got me until she was two, but he has never had me to himself. I was watching him eat his ice cream cone. He was adorable in the way he ate it. I had never had the time to notice how he ate his ice cream before.

When we picked baby girl up from school she told me that her day was good. The best thing was the cafeteria and the worse was PE. She said PE was boring and they did lots of boring stuff in the gym.

It was like pulling teeth for her to tell me about her day, but once she did, it sounded like she really liked school. She made a new friend right away, and she thinks her teacher is pretty and nice.

I am really proud of my little girl and I am already room mom!

Way to go on room mom, how did you manage that on the first day? What is also about the cafeteria? I guess our kitchens are just not exciting enough. Courtney looks so pretty in her dress and I am glad that she has already made a friend. Good to have my friend with me today as well. Thanks!!!

I managed room mom by calling the lady in charge. They sent home a note today with her phone number. She said to call right away, so I did.
