1. Who is this big boy? Certainly not MY baby.

2. I’m a little misty* today due to this small step in my parenting world. (YAY! But also, WAH.)

*most ridiculous word EVER

    Oh, I didn’t sleep the night before my son’s first day of “school.”

    It was awful (for me) and I stressed out over whether he would eat, if any kids would play with him, if he would miss me. He loved it, and has never looked back – I think Wito will have a blast.

  2. Awwww. That’s a hard first step but I bet you will both benefit for it. Try to enjoy your free time!

    OOOHHHHH YEA!!! I cried when all 3 of my kids went to the first day of preschool and I’m already crying thinking about “Continuation”…a little graduation ceremony they have for the pre-K kids on their last day of preschool before they head out in to the VERY BIG WORLD OF KINDERGARTEN! I can’t believe it.

    As long as Wito is happy…you’ll be happy! Enjoy’s gone in a blink of an eye.

  4. Misty is better than weepy. Weepy involves snot.

    I love that shot of him!

  5. They really do grow up quick.

  6. so i am not so crazy, i can hardly put my little one down. i am sure it will only get harder as a little personality comes out. i am proud of you i hope i can do it when the time comes. cute pic.

  7. The first day of preschool is definitely bittersweet.

    I love the little wrinklies under his eyes. My son has the same thing and it just melts my heart.

    He’s adorable.

  8. He’s a cute little dude! He’s going to rock their world at Mothers Day Out.

  9. Yea for getting some time for yourself! Go Wito!

  10. Congratulations on getting away for a few hours by yourself. I am just beginning to look for a weekly sitter for Charlie and am having such anxiety about the whole idea of someone other than a relative watch him. I know in the long run we’ll both be better for it, but that first time is going to be so hard.

    How did he do?

  11. that girl says:

    trust me, it gets easier!

    PS – he’s cute!

  12. Sarah B. says:

    What a little man! He’s so sweet.

  13. What a wonderful photo! The first few times is hard but then it will get easier;) good JOB to him for NOT crying and I was JUST like you! I balled and was a total MISTY mama! hang in there;)

  14. I cried for the first two months of J’s preschool. Then just when I got used to it it was over and time to start real school. That was hard too. I have never even had a babysitter for him, so it was really, really hard when he just walked away from me without looking back.

  15. Holy crap, he’s a cutie! I just love his floppy hair!

  16. I still cry when I take my kids to school.

  17. holy GAWD he is so handsome.
