Now that I have a child of my own, however, it's a completely different experience. I had to start warning Q a week before the start of school that it was going to happen, just so he wouldn't have a huge freak out the night before. While I'm excited for the structure that back to school brings, Q is resenting the fact that he cannot spend his days playing video games and going to the beach.
The night before brought huge anxiety...all the what-ifs that we all experience when we don't know what to expect. My poor little boy has the worry gene of his mother, and so we rationalized all evening about the fear and the actuality. It's been a good lesson for me as well. What am I missing out on in life because I fear all the silly what-ifs that most likely won't happen?
The day before school we took advantage of the beautiful weather and beautiful scenery. This is the city I fell in love with when I first moved here 9 years ago!!
...and this will be Heaven for me. Sun, Sand
and the Ocean
Proof I do feed this kid!!
You try getting 3 boys to smile at the same time!
How was your back to school experience? Tears? Parties?
