In the spirit of catching up on life in September, here’s the “my kid’s first day of school” post. Hey, at least on instagram I’m all up to date! In many ways instagram has been my outlet for social media, rather than blogging. I think it’s because I’ve been processing and working through so much in my own mind, it’s easier to just share pictures rather than trying to articulate my thoughts here. I think I’m almost ready to put it down on paper (or the internet), but these past weeks? Pictures have been easier. And somewhat therapeutic. If that makes any sense.
Onto the Preschool Post! Parker started preschool the second week of September. He LOVES it. Again, he is a super social being so seeing people other than his mama makes him happy. He goes three mornings a week for 2.5 hours.
Here he is all ready to be dropped off that first day.
He has his special bag decorated with robots and his name in puffy paint.
Every time he literally just walks into the room and doesn’t look back to say “Goodbye”.
He’s so super confident.
Having children is weird. All your own insecurities resurface when you watch your kid go into the world. My whole life I’ve struggled with friendships. I’ve always had a complex that people don’t really like me or want to be my friend and that they just are being nice when they hang out with me. I know. I’m working on it. But then I see Parker. He thinks everyone is his best friend and that everyone, of course, loves him. I love his confidence. His optimism. But it also scares me. Like, what if people don’t like him and he doesn’t even realize it? Yeah, I’m paranoid. I know. I just want everyone to love him as much as I do. And for him to be good at everything. It’s hard to let go and just let him be who he is and watch and see what happens. Anyway, preschool is a huge success so far and I can’t wait to see what the year brings!
