Today was a big day around here–E’s first day of 1st grade (all-day school–ack!) and Mimi’s first day of preschool.
Today has been all over the place, emotionally. I often have trouble sleeping the night before a change in my routine and this morning I bolted wide awake at 4am, 5am, and then again at 6:10am, scared that I had missed my alarm and overslept. It was my first day driving a carpool to E’s school and I was nervous about being late to pick up the other kids.
E came home from school and told me about his new class. He said that he sat by a girl named Savannah and mentioned offhand that she called him “honey” and blew kisses at him and that they are BFLs (best friends for life). I think E is most excited that his classroom has computers in it which he can’t wait to use. I wonder if they get to play The Oregon Trail in first grade.
Mimi has been looking forward to going to school for the past year. She loves hanging out with other kids and has always been fairly independent so I knew she would have a fun time at preschool. As soon as we got to the classroom she went right in and started playing toys without even a backward glance.
I started to get a little bit sentimental and mopey about my babies growing up so quickly but then I went home and read a novel while I ate my lunch in blissful peace and somehow I cheered right up 😉
