My firstborn started school today. I wasn't angst ridden. Didn't cry. He didn't seem overly nervous. I think we're both ready. Though after he walked off to class (by himself, at HIS request) I did have second thoughts. Did I teach him enough? Does he know who to turn to if he needs help? Will he ask for help? Will he make new friends? Will he be the bully? Why didn't I walk him to his classroom like I saw all the other moms doing? Oh well. It is what it is. I think he'll do great and I look forward to the recap on the bike ride home.
I can hardly believe we're at this stage in life already.
Kind of exciting.
