O started the 2 1/2 year old preschool class and I swear, didn't even really look back. She did hug me and then off she went to have fun. She was actually a little sad when I first got there to pick her up. What a sweet, little independent child I have. Thats where the excited, sad, anxious, happy and proud part came in. She has already learned so much and wants to go back every day! Thank goodness I still get her a couple times a week.
As for X, he was so ready to start, he knew his teacher and most of his friends names before his first day. He gets to start so many new things this year and he can't wait. I love how far he has come from the little boy who cried for nearly 6 weeks straight every time I dropped him off at MDO, to this confident, mature 4 1/2 year old who strode into class without thinking twice.
As for me, well, I need a hobby. Any suggestions? I'm open for ideas. :) I enjoy doing errands with my kids and we really do everything together, so the thought of running a bunch of errands without them just doesn't seem like much fun. So, I'd like to start doing something fun. I plan on working out while they're in school and I do want to read a little more, but I've always been crafty and would really like to do something along those lines.
Anyway, we are finally starting to get into the full swing of things and I couldn't be more proud of those two. I hope that they learn more than I could have ever thought to teach them (which they will given teaching little ones is SO not for me) and that they make friends, play hard and love school! X is even starting to read which is amazing and I love seeing the progress!! **Sigh** I just love my little loves growing up. (But I'd be ok if they stopped just a little...every now and again, just for me.)
