    and he did fine as we left. Mama on the other hand, not so good.[​IMG] He is my one and only and, being a stay at home mom, we have not been apart for more that an hour or so at a time. I cannot believe how fast these past five years have gone by! We had tried for 16 years to have children and, after four miscarriages and one tubal pregnancy that left me with only one good tube, we thought is just wasn't meant to be. We decided to give up and, when I was least expecting it, I got pregnant and just sailed throught the pregnancy! Doctors still don't know why the other pregnancies failed. And I've become pregnant twice since Sam, and both have ended in miscarriage. Guess he was just meant to be here. I am extremely fortunate and blessed to have this little being in my life!![​IMG]

    Anyway, sorry for the long post; just had to get that off my chest.

    Great job Mom!! He really is meant to be here. I know it's hard on you but think of the fun he is having. I enjoy how much they LOVE to learn at that age.

    Yeah, he'll probably be so busy, he won't have time to miss me.[​IMG] We attended an Open House at his school last Thursday, and he cried so much when it was time to leave, the teacher let him take a toy home from the classroom! That's another good thing, his teacher really seems to enjoy what she does and loves children. She really made him feel comfortable and special. My hat is off to teachers!![​IMG] It's an important job and they are so underpaid.

    Congrats on YOUR first day of school!! ha ha ha
    As a teacher myself, a kind word is wonderful to hear. Give him some time to adjust before you start volunteering in his classroom. That will make it easier for him. I am sure she would love some extra hands of help and he will like it too.

    My youngest just moved out for college! Talk about time flying!!

    My son started 8th grade last Thursday. I've told him "you will always be my little boy" till he could puke. It takes me a few weeks to get used to the house being so quiet, no tv or playstation on. It never bothered me when my daughter went back to school, I guess cause I knew I always had "my little boy" to take her place as she got older. She's almost 20 now:sick:barnie

    Oh, I definitly took lots of pics and they're already emailed to Grandma!! His teacher did let me know that I could volunteer in his classroom. But I will give him a couple of weeks to adjust first.

    Key West Chick: I know what you mean about the house being quiet. No Diego on the tv, toys laying around the house, but no Sammy!![​IMG] Even Fiona, our English Setter, (see avatar) is moping around. She comes out for some love and then goes back to his room and jumps up on his bed. I wish I could explain to her that he will be home soon!!:aww

    My son's first day was harder on my daughter. She was 2 at the time and she literally mourned him being gone that day. She went and sat in his room in the dark. Didn't want to do anything at all that day. So the next day I took her shopping and out to lunch. She is/was such a diva!! That took her mind off Bubbie instantly!! She's 11 now and doesn't want a thing to do with her Bubbie!

    I hope your son has a great first day of school!!!

    my youngest started last year and every afternoon at the same time our dog will lay on the back of the couch and lets me know when the bus pulls in.

    I'm facing the same situation next week. E is also our miracle child. So I understand where you're coming from. Just typing this I'm tearing up. I think this is much harder on me than him.
