Fall Is Here. Hear The Yell. Back To School. Ring The Bell.

Well, yesterday was my baby boy's first day of school. He was so excited to start and even more excited to ride the school bus.
Yesterday, for his first day, Bry & I dropped him off. And I picked him up. I was waiting outside with all of the other parents who dropped off their children. Connor was lead outside with his class in a line by the teacher's aide. Of course, true to form, Connor doesn't stay in line. He runs over to me, where he is promptly ushered back in line. After a firm reminder to stay in line and a few seconds later, Connor is handed off to me. And the aide says, "Mrs. Vettori, will you stay behind a minute? Ms. Lyons (the teacher) would like to speak with you." I say fine, but inside I'm like, "Oh shit. You've gotta be kidding me. Not again. It's only the 1st day." Well, Ms. Lyons comes out & tells me that Connor drank out of an open-top-cup (this was something we had mentioned that needs working on). I was so relieved. So, we head off for home where Connor filled me in on the rest of his day. Here are some photos that document his 1st day and his 1st bus ride.

I couldn't read this without welling up. My Boy (who is my youngest) starts Kindergarten in a week and I haven't been handling it well! I have done everything in my power to not make him a Mama's Boy, to not tie those apron strings too tight, but it's hard when you've been a stay-at-home-mom for 11 years and then your baby goes off to school. I've been gearing up for this for months, but I know I'm going to cry my eyes out next Thursday (after I make back into the driveway, of course). Connor looked so adorable with his backpack, getting on that bus. I'm glad he had a good day.

Awww, thanks! It was tough. It took all the restraint I had to not totally bawl my eyes out. I think the fact that he is so happy is helping me. I'm still having the separation issues, but I'm trying to show some restraint. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I fall apart!!!
