August 3, 2015 my last baby as I know it went to Kindergarten. I won’t lie and say it wasn’t hard. I put on my personal Facebook page that I sat in the car and cried after I left her classroom and I got a variety of comments from those that understood to those that low key made it seem that I was crazy for shedding a tear. I suppose my tears aren’t just because she went to school but a part of me is sad that my mom doesn’t get to experience these first and last moments with me.
So yes, I cried. Not a ton but enough, and then I got home and was able to work for five hours straight. I was fine then.
Our morning went easy, I didn’t put them on the school bus the first day for obvious reasons. I took our obligatory first day photos outside before heading out.
Traffic was awful. I called myself leaving at a decent time to beat the rush. I called wrong.
We made it into the school just as the bell was ringing. Didn’t stop me from being a total creeper and sticking around past my welcome. I mean she waved me good bye. I suppose as soon as your children step foot into elementary school your cool factor moves to being embarrassing.
No worries, I did capture a few photos amid her being perturbed by my first day presence. Girls are ALOT!
They did ride the bus home and I anxiously stood waiting at the bus stop to hear all about her first day. She got off the bus as if she was an old pro and told me she had a great day and that the bus ride was bumpy but she liked it.
So just like that. I have two children in elementary school. Time is moves so slow yet so fast at the same d*mn time. I always say I’m so thankful for my love of over sharing and blogging because subconsciously I have record of tons of life events dating back to 2010. Here is the post from when my son went to Kindergarten. For some reason when I changed servers all of the photos didn’t transfer so the post doesn’t have pictures but here is his first day.
…and cause I’m a hoarder I still have that shirt from his first day and will forever keep that maxi dress she wore. For sentimental value you know.
Anybody else cry? How was the first day back for your children?
