day 5

ok, so do you know that today, after i sat and ate a little breakfast with aidan, he got up and ran into his classroom by himself, and left me there at the table packing up his lunchbox?

amazing. he was kind of whining on the way to daycare, and didn't want to put his shoes on to go, but once we got there, he was fine.

i followed him in to the classroom to put his things away, then gave him a hug and kiss and he said bye bye mommy! and turned to watch cartoons. just like that.

he did start crying as soon as i walked out of the door (i could hear him down the hall) but i'm sure it didn't last long, b/c at 8 am they start play time.

soooo much easier than i thought it would be for him. monday starts longer days, but if we can get through this week unscathed, next week should be a breeze.

what a big boy.

    It is sooooo much easier on the mama when it comes time to leave if her baby is happy and having fun. Congratulations on raising a boy that can adjust to new situations and can handle change.

    sadie is still with cha cha. she's on the waiting list already for next july. i haven't told cha cha yet. she's already broken hearted that aidan is going, i don't want to kill her.

    i'm so proud of my little guy!! and so thankful for a wonderful place with great people!!

    Now comes the day when he will say,
    "That's OK, Mom, you don't have to walk me in. Just say goodbye at the door."
    Now that's a whole different ball of wax - not that my precious Boy has ever said anything like that to me every single day of pre-school. Oh, no. Never.
