Tea And Tissues

This is for all of you mommas and poppas of past, present, and future kindergartners.

Grab some tea and some tissues. 

Today was the first day of kindergarten for my eldest baby.  *sniff*

He rode the bus.  *sniff* 

His sister cried because she wanted to ride the bus with him.  *sniff*

I met him at school and off he went to happily play with a bin full of dinosaurs.  "Bye mama!" he said.  *sniff*

Chewy and I went to the "Tea & Tissue" party hosted by the PTA for kindergarten parents. 

I didn't actually tear up until we were on our way home.  *sniff*

Chewy and I cleaned her room, put clothes away, colored, decorated with stickers, cut paper, did laundry....all before 11am.  *sniff*

Now Chewy is napping and I miss my little car playing, dinosaur playing, lego building buddy.  *sniff*

Only 1 hour and 45 minutes till the bus brings him home.  *sniff*

How did you handle the first day of kindergarten for your child(ren)?  How do you think you'll handle it?  Do you remember your first day of kindergarten?  Reminisce a little with me. 

Enjoy!  (Hi ya to all the new followers!  I'm so delighted to have you here.  You sure have brightened up my day and made me forget my loneliness for a bit!  Thanks!)  *sniff*

Enjoy your weekend and I hope you'll join me next week.  I've got a little outdoor action planned, a little thrifty/interactive wall decor to show you, and hopefully some more stuff for the kiddos.
