Both boys are now at the same school. Oh, how I love one stop shopping. I couldn’t have asked for a better first week. Did I mention T.Puzzle started kindergarten? I’m handling it surprisingly well. When I feel a wave of abandonment descending upon me, all I do is picture his happy little face as he bounces out the door, and then I am reassured. I will not allow myself to wallow in sadness when clearly, my kid is happy. Still, I can neither confirm or deny the shedding of a tear or two on T.Puzzle’s behalf.
The week started with their school orientation and meeting their teachers. Before entering the school premises, I sternly lectured/threatened my boys. They were so excited that I knew their self-control would be questionable at best. They held it together incredibly well. Of course, once we returned home, they wrestled like crazy for almost an hour (no injuries to report, thank you!). I can honestly say, I have never had the urge to violently wrestle my sister after having behaved in a mannerly fashion for an extended period of time. Not once.
By the end of the week, a new drop-off routine has emerged. Full Speed has taken his job as big brother seriously and escorts T.Puzzle to class in the morning. Full Speed even stated that walking T.Puzzle to class is one of his favorite things about his new school year. Coincidentally, that is one of my favorite things he has ever said.
Here’s to a great school year!
