Well, we made it thru and he has deemed it, and I quote “AWESOME MOM”. Despite him getting off the bus one stop too early (a block) and walking half the way up the street before realizing it (while mom is panicked at the bus stop mind you) moments later he appeared at the corner with a hearty wave, and a huge smile. He met 3 new kids, (and remembered their names!) played on his first official school playground, bought his own lunch (and ate it!) and had fun.
Thank you all for your good thoughts and wishes, and for thinking about us today. It was tough, but we did it! (mom, however, has gnashed her teeth so much over the last 24 hours that her jaw is nearly frozen…ugh…I may never chew again!) I’m so proud of my little man!
