wee one takes over the world, one run-on sentence at a time

it has been one year
now the only freaking out
is when there’s NO school

A little over a year ago, the wee one started at his mother’s day out pre-school program. If you remember, the first day was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Now that we’re a year into it, though, I can officially say it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for him.

Yesterday was the first day back after a long, long holiday break. In the morning, he woke up all excited – he ran to my room, snuggled up in the bed with me and said, "I’m so happy school is today, mommy. I love it so much." That’s quite a difference from his fierce, screaming, body slamming freak-out of a year ago.

I can’t believe he’ll be in kindergarten in the fall. I talk about how I’m so excited about it and how I’m counting down the days, but…. wow. Real school. In only seven months. I guess I might be the one having the freak out meltdown when the day comes.

Hahahaha who am I kidding? I’m so friggin counting down the days. I mean, come on, it’ll be the first time in years I’ll have an actual reason for buying school supplies.

Right on.

One thought on “wee one takes over the world, one run-on sentence at a time

  1. yes – it rocks so hard. You have no idea.
    And any time during the Christmas break that we would drive past Anna Kate’s school, she’d look at it longingly and say, “mama, WHEN do I get to go back!?” I’m soaking up all this time when they luuuuuvvvv school.
    I’m already getting excited about school supply shopping for next year, too. I have this sick fantasy of being uber cheap supplies (I never realized how cheap CRAYOLA MARKERS are before school!) and creating an entire supply cabinet in our house.
    Sigh … I heart school … ahem … office supplies so much.
