Oh I know he's ready, it's just that I don't think I am. My six year old bundle of energy, Ryan, started kindergarten today. I've known for some time now that he REALLY needed something more. School's been a callin' for months. He needs the extra stimulation, his little mind is more than ready. But today wasn't easy. He was crying when we left him in the classroom and he was crying when we picked him up after school.
I hope tomorrow is better. I would have some super sentimental "first day" pictures, but he wouldn't let go of me long enough to get any.
Guess I'm gonna have to try for some "second day" pics.
I know it'll get better. I know eventually he'll run off from the car without even looking back, and when he does I'll long for these days.
Don't wanna bring the post down, just please say a prayer for all those out there who's babies, excuse me, big kids, aren't boo hooing their way through the first day of school. Because they are in Heaven, or on treatment, or just too fragile to share a classroom.
In many ways it's a tough day for us Mom's.
(I'll try to get some ultra cute, non boo hooing pics of my big boy tomorrow).
