First Day of Pre-K

This morning we put on our new school threads, took time to style the hair ("special spray" included), packed a lunch, and headed back to school!
Before school started I asked Marcus a few questions:
What's your favorite color: Red.
What's your favorite food: Mac and cheese.
What's your favorite thing to do: Ride bikes.
Who is your best friend: Alex.
What do you want to be when you grow up: A fireman, and after I'm done with that I want to catch bad guys with my daddy.
It's amazing how much a year can change us. Last year at this time I was a bubbling, emotional mess (I'm sure the newly acquired postpartum hormones had nothing to do with it...). This year? This year we dropped Marcus off and I was all, "Have the best day ever! See you soon!" And out I walked with not a tear shed.

Just for fun, a look back at his First Day of Preschool, 2015.
He looks so little!
It goes so fast!

To my little man, Happy First Day of School! 
I hope you have the best year ever!

  2. He looks so much thinner, like he has lost some of his baby face. Which breaks my heart but don't worry, he will always be Cheeks to me :)

  8. It is crazy how time can change your feelings. I had no big deal sending Henry off today, but I was much more worried about Wesley!

  12. I was such a mess last year too! And this year was no biggie. But I'm sure kindergarten next year will be totally different. And styling of the hair... I know this all well.... Liam's is a wee high maintenance.
