I figured everyone deserved an update to know that I'm not still rocking in a corner by myself. We all survived the first day and even better than I could have imagined. I didn't cry ONCE!
It really was all so hectic. We parked the car and walked the kids up to the door that their classroom enters through. There was one other class at that door too so there were 50 littles and at least 50 parents although most had two grownups with them. It was hot and muggy! Jackson said quite a few times through the morning, "I wanna stay home with you mama." and of course I feel guilty for telling them that I would miss them because now I don't know if he just doesn't want me to be sad. We got there 10 minutes early and they didn't go in the doors until 10 minutes late so there was a lot of time to whine about how heavy their backpacks were. While they were in line their teacher came out and said hi to all the kids individually. When I stepped back to take a picture of Madison with her Jackson stuck like glue to me. Once the line went in he followed right in. I was able to sneak a picture of them all on the floor once they were in their classroom.
Chris and I walked back to the car and went to breakfast. After that I had a meeting with a bride and after I got home I actually took a nap! Then Chris and I had to get ready to go to a wedding. We had to be ready to go when we went to pick them up because we needed to leave for the wedding right after we got them. My mom came up and picked them up with us so we were able to leave as soon as we got home. The quick conversation we had with them was that they both loved it. I asked Jackson if he still would have rather stayed home with me and he said "yes." AWWW!
