I woke early to make breakfast. I made it clear to hubby that this is a first day of school thing, and I will not be making cooked family breakfast during the week.
We normally never eat breakfast at home on weekdays because Honeybear used to get all meals at school. Big school only does lunch and afternoon snack.
Honeybear happily ate and then Hubby dressed him. We had to do the first day photoshoot and then we had to go play in massive crazy traffic. There is exactly one road to the school and there are two schools on that road. Hubby and I met at the school and walked to the classroom.
The principal was at the entrance to greet all families. My baby surprised us and gave her a hug and showed off his bag.
We get to his class and he went running to hug his teacher and show off. Hubby and I stood back while they put bags away and chose a picture for his hook and pigeon hole. He hung up his hat and then came to say goodbye.
I was astounded! He then went off to go play. I looked in at the window and then the other mom came to speak to us and tell us he is fine.
I think the thing that helped us all, was that we met the teacher the day before and had a little talk and info session. HB knew where he was going and the morning was no surprise. I think the evening before parents meeting is a great idea.
So that was a great first day at school and life is full of happy surprises, when you need it most.
