My baby boy went to school!!!




I cannot believe that my little almost 3 year old baby went to preschool today!!! Look at how big and how cute he is!!! He asked me just about every minute this morning if it was time for him to go!! When the time finally came, he was so excited - until Mommy was trying to leave the classroom!!

He started to cling, I couldn't get him to play with any of the other kids that were there or do any puzzles. There were also 2 kids screaming at that time! I let the teachers take over and left the room and hid in the kitchen. After about 15 minutes and lots of consoling, he started to calm down. I then left and went and had a frappuccino (Pumpkin Pie Spice - yum!) and browsed around at Barnes and Noble!! What a wierd feeling with no kids!!

I went to pick him up and peeked in the door and he was sitting at the table closest to the door, with his backpack on, just sitting so nicely!! When they opened the door to start dismissing, he soon saw me and ran out to me before he was called! His teacher said they had a great day and reminded him to wait until he's called next time!

On the way to get Macy he said "I had a great time" about 20 times!! So cute!! All tonight he was telling me and Chris that next time he "isn't going to cry". :) Awwwww!!! What a guy!!!

Here's a layout I did tonight for the page a day challenge at ScrapGal.

I found an ad for Walmart that had this arrow right in the middle of the page, so that was my inspiration!! I needed it, I've been in a slump!!

Love that layout!!!

I remember the days of the clinging child!!! Oh, so hard. Cole clung to me even when he got to preschool and it is kind of sad now that he could care less when he has to leave me!!!=)

Jake is a cutie!
