Big Boy, School Boy!

Bruiser headed off to school for the first time this afternoon...and he was so excited!

He stood waiting at the door for 30 minutes for the bus...that never arrived!

So, Mommy and Daddy and Miss Wiggles drove him to school so he wouldn't be late!

He took a minute to pose outside his school...when he really wanted to run right in!
But rest assured, the minute it was time to walk down to his classroom without Mama, all he could do was sniffle and whimper, "I need you, Mama!" I left with a few tears in my eyes (because I am a Mama!) but knew it was best to let him walk to his classroom without me (because I am a teacher, too!).
About halfway though the day (while Daddy and Miss Wiggles and I were running lunch, church chores, visiting Mama's school, and watching Mama fall on her face in the parking lot of the bank! Oh, yes, I did!), Bruiser's teacher called to let me know that he was doing well...settling in, tolerating circle time (his least favorite!), and participating in speech group. I felt so much better when I got that message!
Then he came home on the bus...just like a big boy! It was all he could talk about! I have no idea what he did all day or who his friends are but I do know he rode the bus and can't wait to do it again tomorrow!
(On another note, I also know that what I though would be perfect dismissal times for both Bruiser and Tater from preschool so that I cold get her and be home to get him off the bus...isn't so perfect! His bus was 10 minutes early! So, I guess Tater will have to be picked up a bit early...oh, well!)

And this is where he ended up within 10 minutes of walking in the door! He was falling asleep at the table eating the Munchkins Mama and Daddy got him as a special treat for his first day! Such a tired boy after such a busy day!
Wonder how tomorrow will go?!?

  1. Sounds like a wonderful day! I am sure Bruiser will love school and will never tire of riding the bus...until maybe middle school!
