D went off to first grade... FIRST GRADE!! This was his first time on the school bus and I must say he was such a good boy.. so excited.
H was a whole different story.. he too was very excited to go to school. He too wanted a backpack which he did not need like his brother, I had to fish out one of D's old backpacks. He too wanted to ride the school bus like his big brother, also not happening. I will have the pleasure of driving him for the next three-ish years. After much explaining that mommy's minivan was just like a school bus he was ready to go
And then when I picked him up I found out he pretty much cried the whole three hours he was there, and the same happened the next day.. I managed to sneak out while he was playing but he still cried most of the day, the next day he would not leave me. He knew exactly what was going to happen. I played with him a long time before I had to leave the crying little munchkin behind. :(
He sobbed every time I picked him up, he clung to me the rest of the day when at home. Thursday night he firmly told me he was not going back. Friday morning he reminded me of the fact he was not going back. I had to trick him to get him in the car, told him we were going to do groceries.. he started crying the moment we pulled into the school parking lot.. I had to pry him off me :( :(
He told me he wants to go live with his grandma (my mom) so he doesn't have to go to school. Ever.
Monday will not be fun.
D thankfully is enjoying first grade. Every day when he gets off the school bus he starts with 'do you know what happened..' and then he shares with me all the funny things they did in class.. not all of his stories make sense out of context but watching his big eyes get bigger and his facial expressions.. you can tell he is happy. :)
