We survived. Barely. The first day of the new school year is over. When the alarm went off this morning we all got out of bed and headed out the door. Yes, me too because I knew that I could not stand sitting in the house fidgeting and fretting the day away. Yesterday, the office staff at Little Guy's school asked if I was available to help them out this morning with the inevitable crush that arrives on the first morning of school. yes, YES. YES! So glad to have something to do to keep me busy.
Little Guy was jumping and ready to go. He was hopping around my bedroom at 7:00 yelling, "Who's ready to party?" He gave me a minute by minute update until we walked out the door. Watch out second grade.... he is sooooo ready!
If looks make the man, Big Guy was a knock out. So handsome on his first day of school. Unfortunately, that calm cool exterior didn't match his quivering interior. Poor guy got his nerves from me. He fought anxiety all day. All those new teachers, new classes, new hallways, and tons of different rules about did him in. He was done in by the time school ended. Middle School is quite a transition.
Thankfully, tomorrow is Friday. There is wisdom in breaking in the school year with a short week. I am already emotionally worn out. Going back to school wears a Mom out!
