First Day of School
Today is Hill's first day of school. Chip and I did the typical parent thing and took his picture in his first day of school outfit, then a picture with daddy and the little school boy and a picture with mama and the little school boy. Ok so it's not really 'school' but we told Hill it was. Technically it's where he will go and meet new people and learn new things. So, pretty much school. What an exciting morning!
In his room we met his teacher, Trista. Hill did his flirty smile thing with her where he smiles really big, drops his chin and cuts his eyes. He's a flirt. I started going through his bag and explaining what everything was. Chip said, Rachel I'm sure they know what to do with all those things. I know, I know, I was just rambling. Trying to pacify myself so I didn't lose it because I felt it coming on. I felt the burning nose and the tears welling up. I was not expecting to cry. Crying was not anything I had prepared my self for so I didn't have my guard up. I put his stuff in his cubby hole and went to kiss on my pumpkin....I lost it. Why, I have no idea. It's not like I'm worried they are not going to play with him or change him or feed him. His safety and well being are non issues, I know he's ok. I know he will love playing with others. I honestly have zero clue why I was crying. It NEVER crossed my mind that I would cry, ever! I'm a weenie!
Poor Chip, he kept saying that everything was going to be fine, they would take care of our sweet boy. I didn't think they wouldn't, I was still clueless on why I couldn't hold back this emotional buffoon I'd become! I think my being upset made Chip a little upset too. Yet, we managed to leave our smiley faced boy with his big boy shoes on playing happily with Ms. Trista.
I got to the car and for the first time in my life I wanted to become a stay at home mother. I wished for independent wealth and wondered if Obama really would give us free medical insurance. But I went on to work anyway, I wasn't being rational. I may call later to check in or maybe swing by there since it's right across the street from my office.
Wonder what he's doing now? Probably just being his cutie patootie sweet self and giving away all my kisses!
If you daycare people are reading my blog, save some kisses for me...oh yeah, and I'm doing much better now, thanks! Sigh. Breathe in, exhale.
