As I mentioned last week when we talked about him having to start school Monday, it didn't go well and he was not a happy camper. I tried to make sure that I talked it up each day after that and how much fun he would have and what he might be doing at whatever time it happened to be. By the time we went to meet his teacher on Friday, he was acting like he was pretty excited. In fact, I would be lying if I said I wasn't slightly embarrassed by the way he was hopping, running, laying on the carpet when we were there.
Yesterday, he still seemed pretty excited. Me? Heck no! I didn't want him to leave me! He's supposed to be my baby. Forever. But...there was no way I was going to ruin his excitement and possibly make him scared to go again so I sucked it up. And?? He looks so stinking cute and grown up in his school uniform! Luckily for us, he gets to wear a lot of blue, which he loves. Bonus! He was so excited that he had to put on his new shoes about 30 minutes we had to leave.

Emma was a little confused about what the heck was going on. She couldn't understand why Aiden wasn't leaving with us. And when we got home she told me, "No drop Aiden off." :-( Poor girl lost her partner in crime. I did find her upstairs playing in his room later on.
When we went to pick him up at the end of the day he was still smiling and said he had fun! Yay! His first day was a success!
