I woke up early this morning and made him cinnamon rolls - it's the only breakfast item that he will eat before 10am! When he got up, he was excited to smell the cinnamon rolls and I mentioned today was his first day of school.
He quickly told me that he didn't want to go to school. Maybe he could just look in the windows instead of going inside. Over the next 10 minutes he warmed up to the idea of meeting his friends. Finally he said he wanted to meet his friends and see what toys they had at school.
At that point, I stopped talking about school...hoping that he wouldn't change his mind back to not wanting to go! So Will played with Granddad for a while, collecting rocks for his rock collection and showing Granddad some of his toys.
When it was time to go, he was a trooper. He was ready to meet his friends. When we stepped foot into the classroom, he was hooked. He went around and played with a bunch of different toys before settling in with some play dough and rolling pins. That is when we snuck out.
I go get him at 10am. It is usually 8:30-11:30, but today it is just until 10. I cannot wait to pick him up and see what he thinks of his new school!
