Day 243; To 2nd Grade He goes….

Day 243 of 365; To 2nd Grade He goes….

“But I’m scared, I don’t know where to go!!!”

“But I don’t know what to do with all of the stuff in my desk!!!!”

“MY LEG HURTS!!!”

“I don’t know where to sit on the bus !!!”

Sound familiar? Those are the words I heard out of my seven year old son today as I was helping him get ready for his first day of 2nd grade.

Those words… along with many tears. I had a talk with him, and he marched away happily to the bus, then mid happy march he busted out in tears again! Oh what this does to a mothers heart…!

I did squeeze a smile and a kind-of smile out of him for his ‘first day of 2nd grade photo’ ..required by mom, hated by kid(s).

So here he is… with his kind of smile and big smile;

After I took the above photos, my 3 year old daughter started crying and screamed “I CANT GO!!!” & it was then that I realized this whole time I was talking to my son about having to go to school, and talking about getting on the bus, my poor little 3 year old thought I was talking to HER! The poor little girl. I then had to sit and calm her down and tell her she got to stay home with mommy today.

I pray he has a great day, and I know as soon as he sees all of his friends on the bus and in his classroom, his fear of the first day will be long gone…

{Ok I do admit I helped some of the tears vanish by telling him Id take him for ice cream and a hike to see some waterfalls after school..but I figured it would give him something happy to think about if he’s feeling sad or scared,that,..and I sure could go for some ice cream after a morning like this! 😉 }

How DID (or do) your kids handle their first day of school?!! Let’s hear about it!
