K started Kindergarten

My oldest started Kindergarten today. It was bittersweet, and I’ll admit it… I cried on the way home form dropping him off. He is growing so fast, and looks more and more like my husband every day.

This week has been crazy. K started the week in one class, and because there were so many additional kids he ended up being moved to another class. I think it as a blessing in disguise. His original teacher was a little off. She had a hard time with making eye contact with me, and just gave me a weird vibe. Maybe it is because I am technically K’s stepmom? I know some people get their panties in a wad when a stepmom is called mom. However, his new teacher is great, and she is very friendly. I love love love her. He really likes her, and they seem to communicate better. 

K is still learning the rules, and is having fun making new friends. We are excited for what the year has in store. Soccer has started back up, so we are busy little bees. 

I wanted to share a poem his teacher sent out at meet the teacher. It made me cry.


My First Day

I gave you a wink and a smile

as you entered my room today.

For I know it is hard to leave

And you know your child must stay. 

You’ve been with him for five years now

And have been a loving guide,

But now, alas, the time has come

To leave him at my side. 

Just know that as you drive away

And tears down your cheeks may flow

I’ll love him as I would my own

And help him learn to grow.

For as a parent, I too know

How quickly the years do pass

And that someday it will be my turn

To take my child to class.

So please put your mind at ease

And cry those tears no more

For I will love him and take him in

When you leave him at my door.


I love my son so much, and I am so anxious to see him grow into a young man.
