Today was the first day of Kindergarten for Jaden. And it went well!! No, notes in the bag, just a couple of questions and concerns from Jaden at the end of school.
The morning started good. Jaden woke up a bit earlier than expected and that is no one’s fault, but (you got it!) mine! I took some pictures of him last night when he went to bed, after he was out cold! And I have them noted as being his last night ever, before school starts! I was a little torn about the school thing, because it is just 2 1/2 hours a day, so it is barely shorter than when he went to preK. So this morning I went in around 6 and took some more photos my intention was to catch a few snaps and then when I woke him up later to take video of his morning. Again, you are probably thinking correctly! This is when the flash woke him up, so no videos. We had a wonderful morning, got dressed, had some breakfast got ready for school, took some photos. Not one fight, not one argument, just pure Peace and pleasantness!! If only my little Angel could be within Jaden every morning like this from now on!!!
So off to school, drop him off, still perfection! Waiting in line to sign him in, still perfection! We leave (the girls, Sean and I) come home, do some chores, and then back to get Jaden from school. We wait in line to sign him out, he comes out and smiles. Still perfection, and then….. (nope nothing bad!) he says ” Mommy, the teacher took my things out of my bag and did not put them back?” I asked “your tissues and pencils and baggies were for the teachers, is this what you are concerned with?” And that was the end of that moment, then he says “we didn’t do any homework at school?” I told him it is only the first day of school, and that I will assure him that there will be plenty of homework. He then told me that “we only did music and stories”. Can you believe my kid wants homework? Jaden doesn’t really know that homework is something you do at home, he thinks it is the work that you do when you are still at school!!!
So our first day of Kindergarten is done. What a day, I am sad that I will never get any of the time again with my son that has passed, but I am so happy that his chapter of life has turned!
Happy days my little man, happy days!
