How did we get from here at almost 3 to almost 5?? Yes, my baby turns 5 next week...on the first day of his school career, no less. Couldn't they cut me a break with only one milestone at a time?
Well, here you have the Pickle in his tree. And he is all excited about starting kindergarten. We met his new teacher, Mrs. Martin, this week and he got to see his desk. The most precious part was when she tried to reassure me that Pickle was safe with her as she had X number of years as a teacher and mother. That made my day! I mean, seriously, do I come across as a first time mother? I reassured her that this wasn't my first rodeo, but it was still hard since he was my baby.
Initially, he wasn't slated to go to this elementary school. They had us zoned 5 miles away. It turns out that particular school was completely full, so we had to go to the school board to get permission to attend the school 2 miles away. Isn't that crazy? Why didn't they just do that to begin with? Oh, well...
Mr. Serious here. Wow, he looks so much like his daddy, I just can't believe it. It's hard to believe he's ready for kindergarten. This new school is having a "Boo Hoo Breakfast" for parents facing separation anxiety. I am not sure that I'm facing that, but I do know how hard it is letting them become more independent.
I love this shot, too. He's a sweet Pickle, that's for sure!
