Wednesday was the boys first day of school, and it was surprisingly more difficult (for me) than I thought it would be. Noah went to the same preschool last year, and we absolutely love it, but for whatever reason, it’s still hard to send my babies off into the world without me by their side. I think no matter if it’s preschool or college, as a parent, you’re always going to wonder if you have prepared them for what their day holds.
Right now, for me, it’s hoping that they know where the bathroom is, and are kind to others. I just want them to be awesome human beings that don’t pee their pants and aren’t afraid to ask for help. You know, normal stuff.
On the flip side, I do think it’s incredibly fulfilling watching them grow. They are both so different and wonderful in their own ways, which makes it even more fun to see them go through each new season of life. So I thought I would carry on the tradition we started last year by asking them a handful of questions to document their uniqueness and to see how they change over the years.
How old are you?: Two.
What is your favorite color?: Owenge.
What is your favorite thing to eat?: Cuties.
What about your favorite animal?: T-Rex.
Do you have a favorite toy?: My little choo-choo train.
What do you want to be when you grow up?: Astronaut.
What do you love the most?: Cuties.
How old are you?: Thu-ree.
What is your favorite color?: Blue, Red, Yellow.
What is your favorite thing to eat?: Chicken’s the best.
What about your favorite animal?: Lion.
Do you have a favorite toy?: The piano and microphone.
What do you want to be when you grow up?: I want to dig for dinosaurs.
What do you love the most?: The grass, and my trampoline, and all of my stuff in the yard.
The boys ended up having a great day…for the most part. Emmett absolutely loved it. He walked in without looking back, and came running out when it was time for me to pick him up. He gave Graham a hug and kiss, and was just happy as can be. Noah on the other hand had a little bit of a harder time this year, because age 3 is when they start rotating classrooms and subjects throughout the day. So by 11:30, my sweet boy was missing us. He finished the day strong, and was in a good mood when I picked him up, I think it’s just an adjustment for him. He’s my kiddo that likes predictability. Hopefully it just takes a couple of weeks and he’ll be good to go. I’ve also volunteered to be the Room Parent for both of their classes, so it should be a pretty interesting year.
How did your first day of school go? Also, what are some of your favorite things to pack your babes for lunch? I’m doing mostly finger foods since I pick them up at 12:30, but I need some creative ideas. So please do me a favor and leave any tips in the comments below, because this mama needs some help!
Hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend! XO
