I held on until I saw some other mommies cry. Bug started kindergarten (again) this morning. At first we were like "been there, done that." But then kids started crying and moms starting crying, so what did I do - waited until Bug was inside and then I started crying. I missed the whole first week of school last year - a little matter of Budha being born. He looked so big compared to all the other kids; last year he was one of the smaller ones in his class. I was so proud of him this morning - he got up, got dressed and ate breakfast all without me yelling at him to get moving. Eating breakfast at home is a HUGE deal for us - last year he always ate on the 15 minute ride to school. I really hope this is a sign of how the rest of the year will go. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
