riley the schoolkid

Monday, July 20, 2015

today, my baby started pre school.  technically pre school is only starting here in September but he got space to go now.

we all travelled to school this morning.  riley was so excited but i think he sensed that mommy and daddy are a bit sad (that he is growing up so quickly) and also that big changes are ahead.

before this big day we had quite a few settling in days at the nursery.  and he was perfectly fine on those days, no tears, just super excited to play with his friends.  i think that is why it was so hard for us when we dropped him off to see how he then has a complete meltdown.  it was horrible leaving him there crying like that.  i wish i could just turn around, scoop him up in my arms and never let go.  but i know this is going to be good for not just him but for me too.  school, other children and the whole setting of school is what he needs right now.  i know this will get easier for both of us.... i hope.
