The first day of school part 2

All my fears and worries were for nothing, Harry went off with his preschool teacher just fine and there were no tears shed. I do think that my prep work (taking him to see his class every day after dropping Evan off) really helped him get to know his teachers so he would feel more comfortable with them.

Evan seems to be doing fairly well at school. He likes to go to the bathroom when bored, so I have given his teacher permission to make him wait. I was a bit worried that it could be a UTI but when he went all weekend with his normal pattern I knew he was testing his limits with the teacher.

I am celebrating my brief freedom by eating some gummy worms and not sharing. Daniel is taking his morning nap and I have some lofty plans to do nothing all morning, just because I can.

They get to take a stuffed animal to school for the first three days, it helps comfort the kids and tehy will have a special picnic with the toys on Friday.

My big boys!

We remember the monkey shirt that Harry is wearing. Like the way he's holding his stuffed animal!
Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing to do. Enjoy it!

Ahhhh. They are growing up so fast! That's great that Harry is ok going to preschool. It can be so traumatic for both sides when they cry and don't want you to go. Now you can sit back and take a deep breath......and knit occasionally again!!!!

School starts in 2 weeks for us, and for the first time I'm really looking forward to it because for the first time in 7 years I will only have 2 kids at home. And both those kids nap. The thoughts of freedom are a bit entoxcating!

*sigh* I thought kids grew up fast, but that is nothing to how fast grandkids grow up
