My six year old son headed off for first grade. He is one who loves school. I hope he continues to love it but, I know it will change soon enough.
I took him to his class yesterday morning. He said "mommy I'm a little nervous, I think I need to go to the bathroom". We walked in the building and he quickly changed his mind because two big boys walked into the restroom right in front of us. ha ha. We walked into his class and he shot a quick smile over to one of his buddies from Kindergarten. He quickly sat down at his desk and started coloring a picture.
I remember last year in Kindergarten he wanted me to stick around for a little while. Not this year, he was like "see ya mom". I could tell he was a little annoyed I was taking pictures so, I hurried and headed out.
Last night we got ready for bed and he told me his entire day at first grade. What he ate for lunch, what he did at recess and what he thought of his new teacher. Just before we turned out the lights- he said mom my front tooth is really loose can you try pulling it. It came out .. He was so pumped.. His first top tooth comes out on his first day of first grade.. Really-can life get any better. Ha... Yes, the tooth-fairy came later in the night.
Have a great week everyone. If you get a little stressed think of your first few days in the first grade... I hope it makes you smile
