This morning was nothing at all like I expected. At least not from Nathan. After the last few days of "I really don't want to go to school", "I don't need to go to Kindergarten because I already know my ABCs" and "No, I don't want to make new friends", I expected Nathan to be clinging and crying and asking to come home with me.
We had none of that.
He stood calmly with the other students in the quad. He took his hat off and held it over his heart fot the Pledge of Allegiance. He walked in line to his classroom. Stowed his backpack and hat, then sat down to color.
Me: "Mommy's leaving now...." (Feeling a little nervous and anticipating a meltdown or at least a request for me to stay with him.)
Nathan: "Okay. Bye Mommy."
Well then......off to a good start!
