My baby started 1st grade yesterday!!! I cant believe I have a kid old enough for all day school. It really doesnt seem possible. He has been getting really nervous the last couple weeks to start 1st grade and well so was I. I havent been apart from my kids all day unless they were with family since they were born. Its a big deal being away from them for that long when your used to being with them all day everyday. Last Wednesday we got to meet his teacher and that helped ease my nerves a little. She seemed sooooo nice and I really liked her. I didnt sleep much Sunday night cause I was nervous for him cause I knew how nervous he was. I woke him up and the battled started. He didnt want to get out of bed. I put on my brave face and told him whatever I could to try to help him feel a little less nervous. I told him it was okay to be nervous that it was normal. I told him when I was his age I was nervous to start school too. Well it didnt work and he just kept saying he wasnt going. I had to pry him from his bed and carry him up the stairs. Man that kid is heavy now!!! I got him his clothes and breakfast and got the rest of the kids and myself ready. We all took him in his class. Once he got in there it seemed his nerves went away. It was hard for me to leave. I again put my brave face on and told him how much I love him and to have a good day. I held myself together and once we got to the van I let myself have a little cry. When I picked him up he seemed to have a really good first day. We then went and got them slurpees with my mom to celebrate his first day of all day school. I sure love my 1st grader!!!
