Yesterday was Alex's first day of preschool. He goes from 1-3:45pm tues/thurs. I was so afraid that he was going to be upset when he saw I wasn't staying with him, even though we had talked about it. But, I signed him in and we walked up to the classroom door and as the teacher ushered him into class he just turned around and said "bye mommy" with a little waive, and that was it. Then I went out to my car and cryed for 5 minutes, LOL. I think what got me was just hwo independent he was, it didn't bother him one bit to go to school, he is a little boy now and not my baby!! :-P Then when I picked him up (which I was almost late for thanks to a very large freight train!! ) he just walked out and took my hand. I asked him what he did at school he said that he played on the playground, had snack (of donuts and juice apparently) and that he "listened to his teacher". LOL. But he loved it and said he wants to go back. I am so proud of him. My little my is a little kid now!!
