Today was the first day of school for my firsborn, the Doctor. Highly anticipated. And highly dreaded by me.
We turned up, accidentally a little late, and went to the classroom where the kids were settling in. Once we got his name tag, hung up his backpack, the Doctor looked nervous. Then went over to some other little boys, started building with them and said to me, "Can you go now Mum?"
So we kissed him goodbye, my little boy. My little Kindergarten boy, and walked out of the classroom. Me with tears misting over. Tiny riding on Matt's shoulders, oblivious. We walked back to the car, I sat in the seat and sobbed my little heart out.
At the end of the day, I rang my little boy to see how his first day went, and could tell he was bursting with excitement (and told me about "a rude boy who wouldn't share a train but it had 3 spare carriages!"). And when I got home from work, we chatted and chatted about school. Man I love this little guy.
Day two tomorrow.
Meanwhile I can't find the battery charger for our camera, turned the house upside down, still nowhere to be found. But on a flipside, can anyone recommend a handbag size camera that takes ace photos that doesn't cost a Bombfunk MC?
