First day of school

Today was Elliott's first day of school. I can't believe my baby is in kindergarten! He was really nervous, and so was I. Neither of us could sleep and he had a hard time eating his breakfast before heading out. But as soon as we got to school, all of his worries seemed to melt away. He ran all around the classroom exploring the centers, toys and books. He insisted on bringing an apple for his teacher even though I told him kids don't really do that anymore. Of course his teacher and the other parents squealed at his cuteness. He was loving his first day. I was both proud and heart broken. It was so hard for me not to fall to the floor and cry. Instead I squeezed him, kissed his cheek and told him he was going to have a blast. Now I'm just counting down till I can go pick him up and hear all about his first day. I can't wait! I hope all of you moms are holding up with school back in session. Don't get me wrong, I am sure I will love the free time, but I sure do miss my little man. Happy first day!
