Big Day for WeeMan

Today was WeeMan’s first day of preschool.  Smiles were a little scarce this morning.  I cajoled, I bribed, to no avail.  My usually brave, Big boy was having none of it.  He didn’t want to go to school.  He declared he would rather just stay home today.  This mommy’s heart was breaking, but I took him to school anyway because that’s what a good mommy does. 
Almost but not quite a smile

A little rocking’ out to the Imagination Movers on the way to school coax a small grin from him

But that grin quickly disappeared when his teacher met him at the van to take him to class.  There were some tears, on both sides.  One of the hardest things I’ve done as a mommy was to drive away while my baby was crying that he wanted his mommy this morning.
Of course when I picked him up the scared little boy was full of stories about new friends, songs, and snacks.  
I don’t know where time has gone.  It seems like only yesterday I was cuddling my little burrito baby.

  1. He looks so cute all dressed up for his first day! They grow up so fast, don't they. People would always tell me that and I thought it was silly, but you blink and they're in school. Blink again and they'll be graduating. Now, I'm depressing myself!
