Yes, it's official. Our sweet little guy headed off to his first day of pre-school this morning. (Or, as Emma says, "big boy school.") I knew this day would come, I have thought of it and planned for it. But, I certainly couldn't predict how I would actually feel. I did really well. I didn't cry. I didn't feel sad. I didn't get overly emotional. Well, at least not until I started looking through the pictures and realizing that it truly did happen. He really did get on the bus and go to school. He really did spend almost three hours away from me. I really did turn my little baby over to others and trust that they would take care of him and teach him and love him. I really did. There's no going back now. My baby is no longer a baby. He is growing up and there is nothing I can do to stop it. Not that I would want to.....but still. It seems like yesterday that I held him in my arms for the first time. Time flies, as they say.

Honestly, the morning went by rather quickly. Emma and I got a chance to spend some time together and run some errands. We got home and waited for the bus to come. Tyler was so happy! He went on and on trying to tell me all about school. I wish I could understand what he was telling me. It was beyond adorable and I could not have been more pleased. I know he will love school and will learn so much. Of course, that won't stop me from missing him every single day!!

Oh, Jodie! How exciting and scary and wonderful and terrible all at once! I've heard of growing pains in kids, but they don't warn you about the pains YOU get when your kids are the ones doing the growing! So glad his first day was wonderful. - Gen :D
