This is how Tucker felt about preschool this morning:
P.S. Look at his little feet - he can't stand them being covered by the blanket.
It took a few minutes of snuggling to coax him out of bed - and that was no problem at all with me!
OK, after waking up a bit, THIS is how he felt about preschool:
I've found that it makes it much easier for my children to go to the first day of class if they have a gift to take, so we whipped up a fun "happy" for his teachers. Thank you, Pinterest.
After breakfast and brushing teeth and some more snuggles, he was ready to head out the door:
Where did this big boy even COME FROM?! Just yesterday, he was this:
Sigh. My big sweet boy insisted on carrying his teacher's gifts inside - he was so very proud.
His HUGE backpack makes me giggle - it's almost the same size he is!
But big sister had a big backpack, so he had to have one, too.
And this is basically how drop-off went: he zipped right inside, started playing with playdoh, and didn't look back....as I hovered at the door and watched.
It didn't take me too long to dry my tears because with both kids in school, I had a hot date:
We had to run some errands, but took time for a breakfast date at CFA.
Can we just agree that the Christian Chicken is a whole different experience sans kids?
Wow. It made me love it even more.
We spent the next 3 hours running errands and doing chores and making grocery lists and counting the minutes until it was time to go pick up this guy:
His teachers bubbled about him - my heart swells just thinking about it. They both told us how he used his manners the whole day and how refreshing that was for them and how he was going to be their little leader and helper, they could already tell and how he was always the first to obey and start cleaning up. Man, that is GOOD for a mama's heart.
When I asked him on the way home to tell me about his day, he said "I don't want to talk about it - I'm too tired." Crazy kid!
We're headed to his favorite place tonight for dinner - Chick Fil A. :) Maybe we'll hear more about his day then.
