Such cute pictures of the B-dog. You are so right that we often bring the fear in where it has no place. I do the same thing in other situations.

It looks like this is going to be an easy transition and bodes well for kindergarten down the road. Thanks for sharing the day in pictures :)

I cannot wait for the changes! Good luck to you & B too!!

claire

you were such a brave mama!!
my son is going up to secondary school next week... he looks so adult in his new blazer, collared shirt and tie... i will try and be brave too!

Mine is starting Kindergarten on Friday. Kindergarten! All day! He seems so little to me, still.

You're right about US being the ones that are worried. He is absolutely fine with the idea. But me? Pretty freaked out.

hope you all have a great school year
:)

Wow....I remember it like yesterday....I really am proud of you for your thoughts on fear...you are doing some great mothering. I kinda wrote about the same thing today...but WAAAAY down the road from where you are. You make me feel homesick for the younger days..but one can only go forward.

We had a similar experience yesterday around here as two of my three headed off for another year. It feels like the first time every single time for me! Such sweet photos...
Love,
D.

Heather

ahhhh...
i so remember my kids
first days of school...
and they had never gone
to kindergarden or daycare
so this was huge for me...
and them...

but this year is a new first
for us as well,
my daughter starts junior high
at a new school...and i think that i am just as scared as i was when she started grade one...and she is just as nonchalant.

congratulations to B on his first day...and to mommy!
:)

Bittersweet, isn't it?! We love seeing them grow but miss those days of innocent dependence.

So many of us are blogging about fear right now ... isn't that an interesting thing ... makes me wonder about what is going on in the universe that we're all tapping in to. I love the fact that you made it through this milestone with B ~ reminds me that we're all constantly growing, changing, and transitioning. Isn't that grand? Makes life interesting and wonderful! (And yeah, sometimes a bit scary!)
Much peace & love to you, xx, JP/deb

My Ayden and your B are on the exact same schedule...A started a new preschool in July, and the transition has been a really good one. I think that my fear/anxiety is in the fact that next year he will start "real" school. I am already starting to make preparations, because in order to get him into the school we want to send him to, I actually need to start an ENTIRE YEAR early. Just thinking about that fact that he is getting to that point makes me stomach uneasy. Where has the time gone?

Your photos of B's first day at school are so wonderful. He does indeed look like a little man...and he looks positively happy!

Congratulations on the first year! (I am starting my first year in a new school myself, only I'm the teacher, and it's always just as scary!) Big hugs to you in this new transition.

i always love to see first day photos - B is such a big boy now, sigh. my girl starts 1st grade next week - we're winding down now before our schedule changes here too.
my heart broke a little thinking about mini you walking home and waiting. xo

Jeris

What a sad thought for you to be walking home by yourself...but I can relate. On one of my first days of school, I was too afraid to enter the lunchroom, so I just stood outside the doors and then was hungry all day. My big brother didn't even help me out. Funny how those moments stick with us.

Marilyn

Congrats to the B-Dog on this important step! :) (It's one of the big joys of my job to have the privilege of doing what I can to ease the anxious fears of parents of new students. Truly, a privilege.)

Jennifer (she said)

Thanks for the photos and the thoughts. He is getting so big! We finally start school this week, or rather, Jacob starts first grade. I have my own fears about a new room and new people, but we'll see how Jacob feels about it! I hope his week, and yours, went well.

hel

And I hope you get all the joy you deserve because of all the love you have.

Melba

I know the feelings~ School started today for us.

wishstudio

this is exactly what i am struggling with these days...my fears (not necesserily his). thanks for putting these thought into words for me. i needed that reminder! so glad you are joining in on the crazy collage month ~ can't wait to see wht you create. xo

tongue in cheek

Wonderful post!
Happy tears!
Happy first day too!!

When you make the decision to lose weight, you inevitably then have to go and choose a diet that not only will do the trick but also be a diet and exercise package that will be acceptable and stimulating.
