*moved from my old blog*
duke is wearing a paul frank hoodie ($12.99 from tj maxx), lego batman t-shirt ($7 from walmart), H & M denim shorts ($9.99 from H&M) & vans ($23.99 from WSS) - the only thing new are his vans.
that's our boy! this day was harder for C & i than it was for him. i'm proud of us though, we didn't cry when he waved bye to us. in fact, it's like he didn't even want us there - i took out my camera to take pictures of him while waiting with his classmates and he gave me a look and kept waving me off. it was funny.
duke was in a private preschool 2 whole days a week for a year so he is somewhat used to school life. he's a really picky eater so we packed him a lunch but when we picked him up he told us he ate the cafeteria lunch of nachos, a banana and milk - he was so proud and so were we!!! this is a huge step!
we had a set of rules & reminders that we kept going over with him:
- don't say "crap"
- listen to your teacher
- make sure you eat at lunch because there's no snack time like in preschool
- if you take off your hoodie, put it in your backpack
- don't forget your lunch bag - put it in your backpack
- talk to your classmates, don't do all the talking yourself
- listen to your teacher!
it is going to take some getting used to for all of us. from what he told us, he likes his teacher and he had a good day... & so did we, C & i had a nice lunch out together. enjoy parenting & teach your kids to enjoy their little lives! r
disclosure: duke's back to school outfit was purchased entirely with our own money.
