After a little bit of confusion regarding when Aaron was supposed to start school, we finally started today!
Yesterday we met Nana (my mom) at Woolies so we could buy a new school bag, we couldnt find a Ben Ten bag but we found another superhero one that came with a squeezy juice bottle and Aaron was very happy with it. I also got him his very own thermal lunch box.
He went to sleep last night chattering about ‘big’ school and his teacher and all the friends he will make.
This morning he got dressed, ate breakfast and was super excited to go to school.
I have to admit that I was preparing myself for drama. A small #AaronTantrum perhaps or at least tears and feet dragging when it came time to go to school. I was very pleasantly surprised at how cool, calm and collected my big boy was.
When we got to school he couldnt wait to show his new bag to everyone, the security guard, the moms and dads and the other kids.
He didnt even want to hold my hand which made me want to cry a little but I was strong and held back the tears with a big goofy grin instead.
We found his classroom and the teacher showed us his locker and his towel in the bathroom and then we sat down to play with a little boy called Sam. There was also a little girl whose name is Erin and the two of them found it very amusing that they have the same name. The one little girl that was at play school with him arrived and came to sit with us.
After a few minutes I told Aaron that I needed to go to work and he hugged me and off he went to do a puzzle. Not a care in the world.
Im so happy. He is such a confident little boy and I just know he is going to have such a great time at ‘big’ school.
