We did it!  We survived our first day of  Matt going to preschool.

There were no tears from either one of us.

After last week's open house and Sunday's mini class orientation, he was more than ready to go.

I asked Ann to move a bit closer to Tommy.  I had no idea that was his reaction. Nice!
 He let go of my hand, walked away, then turned back and gave me a big hug, then walked off again.  I guess I couldn't have asked for a better send off.

Are you wondering what I did for my first 2.5 hours by myself??

I went home, enjoyed the quiet, ate breakfast (and sat the whole time!) and cleaned the kitchen.  One hour in I thought it would be crazy to not do a little window shopping.  So I went to Marshall's.  I like it there.
(I may have done more than just window shop)

I read a little in my car and then it was time to pick him up.  

You could say we celebrated afterwards.
He was excited to show his brothers and sisters what he made....Bear ears and a bee hive to go with the Winnie the Pooh theme in his classroom.

Still wearing a little ice cream on his face.
Congratulations Matthew!  So proud of you today!



  1. What a big boy!!! I am so happy you did something for yourself too! Great job to both of you:-) and I really love Tommy's face in the picture!!

  2. So cute. Sounds like a good day!

  3. What a great day!!!

  4. Your love and attention gave him his confidence and allowed him to start off on this adventure happy and content. He also undoubtedly understands that you and your love would be there the second he stepped out of that classroom door. Very awesome!
