First Day of School!

I can not believe I have a child old enough to start school! I know it's only preschool, but this was a really proud "mom" day! I took Cody to school this morning at 9:30 am. For those of you that know us, you know that is early for us! My boys don't even wake up until 10:00! What can I say? We are just not what you call "morning" people! Even though they don't wake up until mid-morning, they still need time to wake up. Knowing this, I decided to give Cody plenty of time to get ready for school this morning, so I woke him up at 7:45 am. He seemed to do okay, but we had to have a little cuddle time, and then he had to have a glass of milk, and a little later he had to have some waffles for breakfast, and finally it was time to start getting ready for school. We put on his new school clothes, combed his hair, brushed his teeth, and made sure he hit the potty before we were finally ready to leave!

We talked about school the whole way there! He was so excited. We had already met his teacher, and she is darling, so Cody knew what he was getting into.

Here he is getting ready to go into school with his class. It may look like he was nervous, but he wasn't at all! He ran right to his teacher!

Grandma bought him this awesome "Turtle Back Pack" (yes, it comes with turtle moves!) He had to show his moves to his teacher, so I snagged a picture!

He did fantastic, and I thought we were in the clear, so I hurried and got back in my car, and started to drive away... That's when it fell apart! Cody freaked. He started running after me, but I didn't know what to do! I didn't know if I should stop, or if I should just keep going, and I thought it would be easier for everyone if I just kept going! So I did! I drove away from my little boy crying on his first day of school! I turned the corner and pulled over, and fell apart! Holy traumatic day! I couldn't just go home, so I turned around and just drove past the house one more time to make sure he had gone inside! That was the longest 2 hours of my life! I was a wreck! FINALLY, it was time to go get my baby!

I had nothing to worry about! He came right out with the other kids in his class and he was so excited to tell me all about his day! He turned and said "Bye Miss Lindsay!" to his teacher, whom he adores, and then walked out to the car with me! I had to get another picture of him after school, in all his art work! (As you can see, he thinks his mom is a total dork!)

That's okay, because he's a dork too!!
I am so proud of you Cody boy!!
