This is Kindergarten, Yo!

8/20/12

The first day of Kindergarten has come and gone and to be honest, I couldn't be more thankful.  Besides the fact that he had an awesome day and danced (literally) his way into his classroom, I'm thankful it's over because I'm totally drained.  My mind last night was racing, and I couldn't fall asleep.  I couldn't stop thinking about what needed to be done, what he might eat for breakfast, keeping my emotions in check, what time I needed to be awake, and what time we needed to leave to make it on time.  I wanted our morning to be frazzle and frustration free, to remember everything I needed to take with us, and to make sure he knew and felt how proud I am of him and how proud I am just to be his mama.



It's still kind of a blur, but I remember smiles on the way there, dropping off his blue card in the school office, and gasping while holding my heart in my chest as I watched a sea of kindergartners put their backpacks in their lockers.  Words can't explain.
