beginnings








so this is obviously a post about hudson's first day of school :)
the last picture shows how i felt about it - kinda wanting to take him & his cute little combed over hair back home with me!
but i managed to leave him there & have a nice day of starbucks chatting & errand running (i had almost forgotten the utter joy of a quiet car ride where i could choose the music i wanted to listen to!).
& he managed to be happy in his class. after a few tears at first & then at the site of a few other moms leaving, he seemed to have a pretty fun day - complete with a new "ouchie" & yellow paint all over his clothes (of course because that's the color they said might not come all the way out!). he did start calling for me the minute he saw the first mom walk in for pick up, but that was okay with me. i'm not quite ready for the day that my mom assures me is coming when i come to get him & he's crying because he wants to stay!
for now i'm happy to answer the calls of "mommy?? mommy??!" with "i'm here! let's go home." :) this is the good stuff of motherhood, no?

What a fun day! Couldn't help but notice your little baby bump Kelly! You're precious!

Jaden DID cry because he wanted to stay. I'm hoping that he doesn't do that tomorrow. His teachers might start thinking they need to alert the authorities.
Glad you enjoyed your "me time". See you tomorrow!!
