First Day of School

Posted by Mandy at 10:00 AM
Well, my baby girl is officially in Kindergarten now. She was so excited. She acted as though she'd gone to that school a hundred times before. I, on the other hand, felt like I stood out like a sore thumb. As if everyone could sense that "new 'big school' mom" feeling I was giving off. Madison sat at her spot at the table and was all smiles when I left. I got back to the van and tried very hard not to cry, but I could not hold back the tears. I am shocked that I am so emotional about this. She's been in preschool since she was 3.. but this is so different. It's REAL school. I am sitting here just wishing I knew what she was doing. I can't wait to go get her and hear all about her day! Carter is missing her a little. He was asking for her when I got back home. But, he's definitely enjoying the one on one time with mommy and daddy!

Are we doing playgroup tomorrow? I'd love to if it isn't raining!! I hope I won't be out there all alone! Once I drop Madison at school I plan to head to the park.. all who want to come hang out, come on!

Oh, I did find a nice big lunch box at WalMart.. it is not cute though. After buying cute ones last year, I've learned my lesson. If I want to actually fit food in there, I'll have to put size over attractiveness! I'm still on the lookout for BIG and CUTE lunchboxes for cheap though.

I'll be anxiously awaiting all of the blogs about the first days of school! I hope everyone has a great first day!

I'm a little worried about Lou's first day of Kindergarten. She seemed nervous this morning. I haven't gotten any screaming crying phone calls so maybe she's still alive...I hope. :(

its possible i'll be there tomorrow, right about 8. . .the girls and i have nature walk - science from 8 to 9 , so i think i could get away with a short trip to the park and call it science as long as we notice the weather, clouds, etc.; right? just say yes. today is the first formal school day we've had since spring break last year, and i couldn't ask for better. can't wait to hear about your daughter's first day. . .and lou's, too! :)

We will be there. I love going to the park when we actually make it. Is Veronica coming? I know how you feel everytime I drop off Tyler I want to cry. I can't imagine the time when I go back to work full time. I might have to start with part time first.

Leslie, Veronica won't be coming. She got a job working at a daycare here in town... so she'll be out of the loop it seems! I hate that too b/c she's so sweet! It's great to hear all of you guys are going to come though! Yahoo! Our group is gonna be so much quieter with so many kids gone to school!

School was great. I sure hope Madison had a great time. I am sure she did. She didn't have the old grump pregnant Miss Arnold. Just kidding.

I remember the first day of Kindergarten for Nick as if it was yesterday. First of all, it was a huge mistake for Tammie to have me take him to the school. When we got there and I dropped him off, he didn't want to go with any of the teachers. He was holding onto my leg as if I was going to have it amputated that day and he was never going to ever see it again. When I finally pryed he from my leg, I went to my car, and the teacher took him to the door to wave goodbye to me, I cried, he cried, so bad for both of us, that I had to just take him back home. Isn't that just sad ????????

Kevin, it was the same way for me on my first day of Kindergarten! My mom thought that she would be smart and send my oldest sister (whom I LOATHED at the time) in to drop me off, and I screamed and cried and wouldn't let her go. I thought that they were leaving me there forever. Tragic! It eventually got better, and I even named my favorite baby doll Mrs. Judy after my teacher! :)
