Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to big boy school we go....


For those of you wondering how today went...
IT WAS MUY SUPERKALIFRAGLISTICEXPEALIDOCIOUS, FABULOSA, FANTASTICO, BUENO!!!
Luke was so excited to go to big boy school. I said, "You're such a big boy Luke". He said, "No mommy, I'm Luke Elijah Rice". He loved his first day of school. He walked right in met his teacher's Miss Peggi and Miss Kelly and began "flaying"(playing) with PlayDoh. He had no pee pee accidents and had fun in chapel sitting by his buddy Sheppie.
Now for Mommy..............I'M FREE!!!!!!
No, I did NOT shed any tears. I did feel a bit wierd eating an ice cream cone sans 3 yr. old at 9:30AM at Mickey D's w/o a little one screaming "ICE REAM, mommy Ice Ream". It was refreshing.....I also got to pee without someone staring at my crotch saying, "Mommy, you go tee tee"? I also got to go to WalMart alone, in and out in 10 minutes....That's never happened. I usually hear, "Go dat way mommy, no go dat way" & "I want pumpkin mommy". I also, got all the clothes folded w/o interruptions and bed sheets changed, a couple loads of laundry done and the dishwasher loaded. I pretty much felt as free as a highschooler whose parents left town for the weekend. I didn't know what to do with myself, but I promise I'll figure something out. I'll enjoy the solitude two days a week. I love my son with all my heart and enjoy being a stay at home mommy, but today I realized just how little ME time I've had for 3 years. It's quite refreshing I must admit. Hope you like his 1st day of school pic's.

Free time is good for Mommy!!! And big boy school is really good for little Luke. He is going to just love it! Morgan loves her teachers and school and is so proud of all the work she does.
Have fun on your days off! :)
Thanks for the comment.
I'm just hanging in there...taking things one day at a time.
I think I'll be taking a trip up to the Big D here pretty soon.
