  • today was Mikey's first day of kindergarten...i had no idea that i would become emotional over it. he had a good night sleep and i woke him up earlier than usual because his new school starts earlier than his preschool. he got up and brushed his teeth and sat down for breakfast...then i let him pick out his outfit (within reason) and we were off!
    michael's father was there and we both took photos of him and his "big boy" backpack. we then walked him to the kindergartener's playground and waited for his new teacher. he had met her the night before and she was very pleasant.
    when it was go time, all the kids were lined up and michael's father and i just stood by him...after a few minutes, michael said to us, "when are you guys going home?"
     
    the truth was, i didn't want to leave him! some of the other parents started laughing...

    so, his father told me it was time to leave and basically walked me away...i started tearing up and i could hear Michael telling one of his classmates, "thats my mom...she cries alot because she has a baby in her belly. she used to throw up alot and when she threw up she would make a loud noise like EEEUUUURRGH!..it was gross" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    so, i walked away sad AND embaressed.
     


    sigh...kids grow up so fast.
