My little man started preschool a few weeks ago. He loves it. He asked over and over, all summer, when school was going to start again. He has the same teachers and he adores them. This kid was just born social. He was born wanting attention, he was born happy and free spirited, he was born ready to take on the world. He had no issues waltzing back into that classroom like he owned it. It made me proud.
I am totally one of those moms who gets sad thinking about her baby going to school. I am so lame. I actually have already gotten so sad thinking about kindergarten....which isn't starting for a year! I just thought about how fast this last year went, and how this one will go by just as quickly. I can't help but think that once he's gone, he's gone. That sounds dramatic, but five days a week from 8 to 3 is a lot of time away, and once he goes to kindergarten it'll be like that until he graduates and leaves. See? I'm pathetic. I just love that little guy so much. I love hearing him laughing and running around like a tornado through the house. When he is gone or sleeping I do enjoy the still and quiet, but it feels like something is missing. I miss the boys when I work, I miss them when they are gone. I really do just love being around my kids. So, I guess I will always be that mom who can never just let go. I will be the mom that goes in the car and cries when her boy heads off to school. I will have a harder time than he will. I am sure I will love it for many reasons, but man will I miss him.
For now, he only goes two days a week for three hours. It's perfect. I get to spend that time with Beckham and I am loving it. I love going to pick Kaden up and seeing him run to Beckham and I. Becks gets so excited when we pick brother up. The school is brand new and has the most fun playground.
The other day when I wen to get him, Kaden's teacher called him over to her and gave him some flowers. He got the biggest grin like he had just remembered...he came running to me with his flowers, "Mom! I picked these for you because I LOVE you!" He is just so sweet. As we were walking out his teacher said Kaden is so adorable. He is so sweet and I love having him again this year. I know we aren't supposed to have favorites, but he really is so special. I am going to miss him next year...
He is so special, and I'm going to miss him next year too... I'm pathetic!!
