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.)
