When Nenji and Rylan were preschool age, I was so excited for them to start preschool! I was a little sad to let them go but I was also excited to get a few hours of peace and quietness too!
This year I had been really debating on whether or not Spencer should go to school. I put it off for a long time because I knew I would miss him terribly, he is just such a good little boy and I enjoyed him being home with me....plus he's the baby! But I started to see that he wasn't doing and learning much. And I tried so hard to be good and teach him at home, but he would get so bored so easily.
So I asked him one day if he wanted to go to school, and he just beamed and had a huge grin from ear to ear and said, "YES, mama!"
So I enrolled him. Even after I enrolled him and he started his first 2 days, I tried to convince him to just stay home with me. He said, "No mama, I go to school and you pick me up. It's just 5 minutes." Meaning that he'll be at school for only 5 minutes and I'll be ok. I just laughed.
This week was his first full week of preschool, and he LOVED it! Everyday when I would pick him up he would say, "I had fun, I love school, mama!"
It's been an adjustment for me having the house so quiet, but it's also been pretty nice too. :)
I can't believe my baby is so grown up!
Spencer at home with me....bored.
His first day of school. Look how little he is!
