Back To School Celebrating
Today my son started his first day of school in his kindergarten class. It was a very bittersweet moment for me as a mom. On one hand, I am just so darn proud of him and that we have made it to this amazing milestone in our life. On the other hand, the selfish part of me wants to keep him home one more year. Of course, I kept him home an extra year and it still just never feels like enough.
As soon as he hopped on the bus though, I knew that we would have to plan a little celebration for him. Emily did her part destroying the house while I did my part in cooking our dinner. We celebrated his accomplishment simply with a homemade pizza, watching the Olympic games, and feasting on a fresh batch of blueberry muffins.
The rest of the week will be spent trying to get back in the swing of things again- I am putting my calendar back online, I have been working on our menu plan, and getting back to playing the CVS game. The rest of the time will be spent working on the house and reacquainting myself with a regular laundry routine.
As he got off that bus today, I couldn't stop smiling, or hugging him, or kissing him. I wanted that first day to be so special for him and I hope that it was. I fulfilled that dinner request and let him man the remote for the night which is just what he wanted. Simple and special... just like him!
Do you celebrate the first day back to school in any special way?
