I’ve started waking up at 6:30, as opposed to 8:30, which actually feels good! School starts at 8am sharp, so we have to leave the house around 7:35. It’s nice to be feeling productive and to have some time to get things done in the day without feeling like my son is being neglected.
My son started Pre-K4 yesterday and when I picked him up, he said he had a great day! In the days leading up to school starting, I asked him how he felt about going back to school. He said, “I will miss you.” Awww . . . melts mama’s heart. I’ll miss you too, buddy. He was so excited to see all of his friends again and pretty hyper on the back-to-school/meet-the-teacher night. When I dropped him off today, he just waved bye and said, “Have a great day!” No tears, no “don’t go!” or “I don’t want to go to school”. He’s getting to be such a big boy and I’m so proud of him.

Have a great day!
