Jansen starts preschool today. By the time you’re reading this, he will have probably cried for 20 minutes. I don’t anticipate crying, even though most people tell me that I will. I’m not sad about him going to school. I think it will be good for him to learn that there are more people in the world than his family. He needs to learn to play and to get along with other kids.
It’s going to take me a while to get in the swing of things. Somehow I need to get used to going to bed a bit earlier, waking up a bit earlier, and getting him to school while they’ll still feed him breakfast. Because breakfast at home? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
What are good toddler breakfast ideas? At home I can give him pancakes or eggs or yogurt. That’s not a very travel-friendly breakfast. I made some banana mini muffins for him to take, plus one of those fruit puree pouches. That’s about the extent of my breakfast ideas. HALP ME!
Tomorrow I’ll be running late. I will probably linger a bit at the school so he knows he is okay and that mommy thinks all these people are safe. The room he’ll go to in the morning has 3 gerbils. This fact alone will probably be the thing that makes this a fairly easy transition. Little man loves animals, especially disgusting rodents.
Wish me luck and say a little prayer for us. I’ll let you know how it goes!!
