What a big day! BOTH kiddos went to school today from 9-1pm and mommy got four hours of ALONE time to run errands, go to gym, Publix, etc. I missed them a ton but it was so nice to just get out of the car and go.
We got a late start to our morning b/c George and I went to bed super late so we all woke up around 7:45! Luckily I had gotten their bags ready last night & just had to get lunches situated. George stayed home and helped me which was really nice! I even had time to jump in the shower.
Before we left I tried to snap a few pictures of the kids. Of course they wanted nothing to do with it.
Hudson let me take one picture of him but he was doing something funky with his eyes!
Once Emma got in the van George got her to smile and she was immediately her happy bubbly self!
She kept telling Hudson how excited she was that he was going to school and telling him how much fun he was going to have. I tell ya, she is SO good with him. They definitely have their moments but for the most part they are so loving and sweet with each other.
When we got to school we parked downstairs since that is where Hudson’s class is. I knew he was going to cry so I prepared myself. I’ve already went through the crying phase at the Y daycare so it was much easier than it used to be on me. Emma and I both walked him to his room and handed him over to Ms. Nene.
My friend/neighbor Amanda signed up her 2 boys, Austin & Asher, this year too so Hudson & Asher are in the same class together. They also go to the Y and so the kids get to play together at the gym so hopefully that helped. Amanda is in the pink shirt.
It broke my heart to see him so upset but he I know he was in great hands and after I took Emma to her class and went back downstairs he was not crying. On his 1st day he got to play in the gym, color, music class with Ms. Joy, and play. Ms. NeNe said he did great and occasionally he would start crying but would calm down. When I picked him up he had a big tear on his face and it was so pitiful! I brought him home and he went straight down for a nap!
Emma on the other hand, was all smiles and had a wonderful first day. She’s been dying for school to start so it was great. I walked her upstairs to her Ms. Lisa’s room and she led the way. We found her cubby and put her new pottery barn packback in her cubby and she went right on in. She asked me to come in with her for a second and I took some pictures. She just smiled and was so incredibly sweet.
Several of her friends from last year are in her class so she liked that. Our friends, Greg & Tracey’s son Logan is in her class too.
When I picked her up she just started rambling on about what they did and how much fun she had. She said they played outside, had music with Ms. Joy and played “hot potato” and her friend Faery won and Faery was line leader. She went on to tell me that maybe next time she’ll win but she doesn’t know what game they will play and so on and so on. It was so funny! Then she also told me that in only 3 days she’ll get to go back. I’m so happy she loves it so much. Now she’s watching a show, eating a snack, and having quiet time while brother sleeps.
So that’s our day! The house is mostly clean so I’m looking forward to a lazy fun evening at home!
