First Day of School
I love how little man is standing behind her.
Dread. Mixed with a teeny bit of excitement. That is what I felt on Labor Day. It's what I felt every Labor Day for years of my life. The realization that Summer was over and the school year was beginning. Now, for the next 18+ years I am going to be subject to the public school year. Ugh. No more fun vacations mid-September (Remember how we went to Disney World last year at this time?), no more late nights during the week.
Full day Kindergarten is in full swing. Boo went cold-turkey on her naps (although she still had one today since it's Saturday). The night before school started she asked what we were doing the day after Tuesday and I told her, "School." "And the day after?" "School." I guess I hadn't told her that school was EVERY day.
S. walked her in as I ran home to get her lunch I forgot. Hopefully that is the first and last time. I am still scarred for the times I forgot my lunch.
The only tears shed were those from the mom.
