I did it! I survived Jakes first day of school!

Kevin (Thanks a billion Kevin) came with us for moral support (or should I say to drag me off the property by my toes as I tried to grab onto the door of the school, while screaming and crying for my youngest not to be sucked into the educational system, where he will grow up faster, become more independent and need me less...), sorry I got side tracked, that is what I thought I should do...

Kevin came for moral support. We all walked around to Jakes door and stood with all the other oh so little children. Luke said bye to Jake and gave him a big hug and kiss and went to his line up, Sam soon did the same. Jake started looking a little flushed and wide eyed. I gave him a hug and kiss, he went to his line up. The teacher called him over to enter the building. He went in waving to me as he went... I was fine.

As the last little one entered a little face appeared behind the teacher. It was scrunched up crying, red and teary. My little Jake said "bye mama" as he waved, crying. Well I was done... the tears rolled.

The next 2 1/2 hours were spent looking at my watch... I missed him.

When Jake came out of school he was all smiles and full of life! He loved school! He had settled right away.

Good grief parenting can be hard work!

P.S. Pictures will come soon!
