He did it. Hugged us and went right into the classroom, then came out smiling when we picked him up. No meltdowns. No clinging to us. No “I don’t wanna gooooooooo!” None of the things we feared might happen.
In fact, the only ones who shed any tears were his mother and I.
I snapped this shot right after he came out. He was only gone for a few hours … but I think he looks older already.
My son had his first day of school today, and he did great. I’m so proud of him.
