Alec's first day of school...

So today was my Alec's first day of Pre-Kindergarten. We all went to orientation on Friday, just so he could get a taste, but when I woke him up this morning he was less than enthusiastic. He came out and asked to lay on the couch for a few minutes - Okay, not an issue. Then about 20 mins later I told him he needed to come in and eat breakfast. That's when he started to cry. I pulled him on to my lap and asked him what was wrong, he said he was scared and didn't want to go to school... So I explained to him that there was nothing to be afraid of and that Mommy would never send him somewhere bad. He wasn't buyin' it! But when I asked him again to go in and eat, he did.

Then we repeated the issues when it was time for clothes, shoes, and even brushing teeth... Everything and anything set him off, he just kept crying and I didn't know what to do. I just kept working with him to breath through it... Finally I talked to him about the bus, and he said he was scared of the bus. Seriously, I live 2 minutes from the school, so I just drove him. I mean, I have to drive to the bus stop anyways, so why not go the extra 2 blocks and take him to school myself. So that's what I did.

We get to the school, I get out and get him out... We get 2 feet from the car, he looks at me and says "Okay mom, I'm not scared any more, BYE!!" and starts to run in to the school...

Really? All the drama and headaches and crying and he is JUST FINE!

That said, his father and grandmother are less than fine. Jason started calling from work to check in at about 7:45 and didn't stop til he came home at noon... My mother said she actually cried last night because he was going to be starting school and he's "growing up so fast." Apparently I'm the only one that's excited about him starting school - Hell, I can't wait for the baby to start school some days! But that's most likely because I'm the one that's here with them all day and I'm the one that can't ever get anything done because of the fighting and crying and all around craziness... 

Anyways, when we went to pick him up from the bus, we were kinda afraid he would be to scared to ride it. And when he got off he wasn't talking, and wouldn't look at us - which is what he get's like when he's upset. So we assumed he didn't like school. We get him in the car and start asking him questions... Did you like school? No answer... Did you like your teacher? No answer...  Are you glad to be home? "NOOOOOO" he hollers, "I wanna go back to school!"

So as it turned out, he loved school! Loved his teachers! Loved the other kids! And had no issues with the bus...  It was by far the best situation it could have been... Now I can't wait til he goes all day! It was kinda nice only having 2 for a while...
