First Day

Yesterday was Collier's first day of 'school'...I was so excited and only a little nervous when he started getting mad at Mella for making his peanut butter sandwich.  He told her 'I not want that' and then ran to the me and told me 'I not go there'.   But we did go there and he did pretty good with being dropped off.  I was worried about the whole potty thing being in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people and so we talked about it a good bit and once we arrived the teachers assured me that they would check with him through the day and it would be fine.  I asked him if he needed to go potty and he said yes and so his teacher took him which made my exit much easier.  At one point his little lips both turned down low but he was strong and didn't shed a tear....that is until about 12:30 and he lost it and didn't really recover from that point.  When Mella picked him up he cried even harder.  We all decided that it was because he was so tired.  He is used to a morning nap and to go cold turkey on this change is a hard adjustment.  He will get through it and it will get better but was a tough first day.  Up until about 12:30 they said he did great and played great.  No accidents and he went potty twice, so I was very happy with that.

After Mella got him in the car it only took about 3 minutes before he was fast asleep.  Bad part was once they got home he wouldn't go back to sleep and never went back down.  Long day for the little man but he finally fell fast asleep around 8:30.  My sweet little boy is just growing up.

Sounds like he did great! Give it a week or so and he will be excited about going & getting to play with his new friends.

Love & hugs to everyone!
