My two year old had his first day of school. Yes, I cried harder than him.

Getting out of the car.

All smiles walking toward the school.

He’s growing up so fast, and I don’t want him too.

How did you cope with your child’s first day of school?

  1. That is just outrageously cute.

  2. I think we will always have a harder time than our kids. He looks adorable and I hope he had a good first day!

  3. My first one was in day care since I was a single mom. But yes it was hard to deal with. My 5 yr has been going to elementary school since he was 3 so it wasn’t that hard but still my daughter and him are 9 yrs apart and it was like it was my first born all over again. I still have one more at home and I’m sure I will cry when he starts.

    Your little man is so cute!

    • Dear Tiff,

      I had to put my first two in daycare because I was a single mom as well and working third shift and then taking care of two active boys was killing me. I had to switch jobs and put them in daycare. I felt awful but I had to understand that I wasn’t expected to be super mommy. I could have 19 kids and I think I would probably cry for ALL of their 1st days.

      Take care,

  4. LOL. Looks like a very happy child. My children were the same way.

  5. He is so cute – love those big eyes! I am sure I will be a basket case when my son finally goes to school.

    • Dear Jennifer,

      Yes ma’am you will! It’s in a mother’s nature. lol I thought “hey, I’ve already done this three times I’ll be fine.” No, that wasn’t the case. lol

      Take care,

  6. Cutie-pie! Hang in there mom. It’ll get easier!

    Winks & Smiles,

  7. I finally stopped crying on the first day of school when The Princess was in 5th grade.

    • Dear SuperMommie,

      I stopped crying after preschool. I was already use to them being gone all day and they no longer were clinging to me. I have four boys though, so I’m sure if it was my little girl I would still be in tears all the way up to highschool.

      Take care,

  8. Oh she is so cute!

    • Dear Julie,

      I get that all of the time. That’s my little rough neck boy. You just have to excuse all of that hair. 😉

      Take care,

  9. Shynea,
    He is absolutely adorable!! What a sweetie. I’m glad to hear that he handled it well….if he didn’t, you would be even more of a mess. I know that from experience. I once had to peel Chuckie off of my leg and walk away, that was awful and I cried the whole way home! He was fine after I left but it was traumatic for me! lol!

    • Dear Priscilla,

      I know that had to be SO tramatic for you. I would have been in tears as well. I understand that they have to get socialization with their peers, but I still just want to keep them home with me. (Although they drive me nuts. lol) I would homeschool if I had the patience. Ummm, no. I take that back. No I wouldn’t. 😀

      Take care,

  10. awww such a cutie! why do they grow up so fast 🙁

    • Dear Mizhelle,

      As much as I say I want them to be grown already I still am all nostalgic when they get older. 🙁

      Take care,

  11. OMG he is so freaking cute!!

    Last September, when Ro started preschool, I was afraid she was going to cry and miss me. NOPE. She was all “OK. Bye! I’m going to school now!” LOL

    I made it to the gate before I lost it completely. It’s so sad that we cry more than them.

    • Dear Shan,

      Awwww. lol I guess she said she was ready to be a big girl. 🙂 I had one son who was ready to go to school and he was like “bye ma” and left me at the door. lol

      Take care,

  12. What a little cutie! I hope the first day went okay! And I was just like you-in tears the first day, but it does get a little easier!

    • Dear Staci,

      It has gotten easier for me this week because he is settling into school just fine. I was just SO upset because one, he’s growing up and two, he was upset. I guess after he figured we would be coming back for him he chilled out a little bit.

      Take care,

  13. They grow up so fast, don’t they? It is unbelievable how fast they grow. My baby is one today – can you believe it?

    • Dear Upstatemomof3,

      They really do grow up SO fast. I just look at them in amazement sometimes. Awww, your baby is one today! I know you were all kinds of emotional. What are you doing for her birthday?

      Take care,

  14. I couldn’t wait for mine to go— JK

    • Dear Lamazogogo,

      I thought I would have been the same way since he was my third son, but I was still all emotional.

      Take care,

  15. He is so adorable. He reminds me of my daughter with his little round face. I should email you a picture of her 🙂

    • Dear K.O.,

      You really should. I have been wanting to see a picture of your little girl for the LONGEST. I bet she is TOO cutie. 🙂

      Take care,

      • I just emailed you some… 🙂

  16. Sounds like my oldest when he went off to school. I actually followed the school bus and he never looked back. LOL! They grow so fast.

  17. He is such a sweetie pie. I love his do.
