The First Day

This morning was The Boy’s first day of official, public, real-thing preschool.

He looked dapper in his striped shirt (with nametag!), shorts, and absurdly large sneaks. He was eager to get there, and happily chatted up another kid while we waited for the teacher to march them off to class.

The parents held it together, while the kids were still in view. Walking out of the school, another mom confessed “this is why I didn’t wear mascara today.” The Wife responded, “this is why I wore sunglasses.”

“Lump in my throat” doesn’t quite cut it.

He’s on his way…
