School Recap So Far

Funny things from the first weeks a school.

On his first day they had to go around and say their names and their favorite food. He said " My name is Gavin and I love salmon". HAHA 

When I asked how his first day was he said "my armpits sweat a lot at recess  and there is a girl in my class that gets in trouble a lot so I'm not going to be friends with her". 

He only eats his sandwich at lunch time because eating cuts into playtime. 

We walk every morning with a little girl next door that I'm pretty certain he has a crush on. Easy tiger, you're only 5. 

At back to school night I had to fit my butt in a teeny tiny kindergarten chair. I was pretty convinced that I was never going to be able to get out of it with this belly. 

I get a big fat kiss everyday before he walks into class, even if his friends are looking. I'll be sad when the day comes when kissing your mama goodbye isn't cool.

It happened. My first born started Kindergarten. As if I didn't already lose my bananas when he started Pre School last year, this was way harder. Add on raging pregnancy hormones and you can just imagine what a crying blubbering mess I was. My son, however, was amazing. He wasn't nervous at all. The Friday before school started all of the Kinder students were invited to go meet the teacher, check out their new room, hopefully meet some new friends and just kind of explore the school. Thank the baby Jesus they did this because it completely put all of the kids and parents at ease. The first day rolled around, Daddy made a pancake feast, we put on our school clothes and walked to the beginning of our next big chapter. I had my camera and tissues ready. I honestly think I was holding my breath.... I was so nervous. We lined up and the teacher opened the door and he walked right in and never looked back.  
That was it. 
He was ready 
He found a seat at a desk and I ran to the window to catch one more last glimpse. He looked up with a HUGE smile on his face and waved good bye. 
It happened so fast.
There were no tears. No clinging hugs. No nervous energy.
Steve and Sofia and I walked and she cried of course. She wanted her best friend back. I got home and sat on the couch and burst into tears. I was so heartbroken and so proud all at the same time. I knew he was ready, but watching him walk into something so new and so big that morning, with total confidence, totally blew me away. 

I learned a lesson that morning. I will always be his Mama no matter where he is. He will always know how much I love him and how much I support him. He will have to make decisions on his own, and figure out some of lifes hard stuff with out me being there to help. And I will always ALWAYS be his number one fan and will ALWAYS be there when he needs me, even if its from a far. 

I love you sweet boy. I love you so much sometimes it takes my breath from my lungs. I am so proud to be your mama and so excited to see what this new journey has in store for us. 

I love you to your Kindergarten bones.

Chasing summer

My baby boy starts kindergarten on Tuesday, and true to form, I'm having a hard time with it. That's a whole separate post and a whole bucket of tears.

To celebrate his last week of summer we packed the Fam up and headed to Palm Springs. It was perfect. We same for hours on end, ate dinner in bed, watched movies, swam some more, just had good ole family time. It was one of my favorite trips.

I have three more days home with my boy before I have to share him and I am going to love him up till he can't breath. I'm a lucky mama to have such wonderful babes.

I wish summer didn't have to end
