first day of school

Jack's first day of school was harsh to say the least. There were many tears on both sides. It was rough, man, I won't lie. After dropping him off I had to keep repeating mantras in my head to calm myself... "It's for his own good." " It'll put hair on his chest to cry a little." "Don't make a U-turn"... and so on.

Here's the pic I snapped of him on the way out.
You know... when he was still excited and happy. Yeah.


And here's the "Happy First Day of School" portrait he came home with:

Is that not enough to just break your little heart!? He looks like he's getting his mugshot. Poor guy! I seriously started laughing in the teacher's face when she handed this to me. Here's to hoping next week goes a little smoother.
(Your prayers and good wishes are welcomed.
This has proven to be harder than I thought.)

Poor guy, looks like he had a pretty rough time. Hope the next day is easier. If not, there's always next year!

He looks SO pathetic! Even then, your post made me laugh. You are so funny - even in the face of heart-breaking adversity! ;) I know, for this mommy, that day will be excruciating, and I do not envy you. You can do it! XOXOX

I laughed out loud at my desk...that is just a priceless picture. If I had one of Aaron I can tell you they would look like twins!!!!

It does get better.
