first day of school?

You started school today.

I keep thinking, "I'm not old enough to have a child in school. You're not old enough to go to school." And then I remember I'm right. I'm not old enough. You're not old enough.

But it's not that kind of school. We still have a few more years for that one.

You started some schooling today through the state to help you with your gross motor skills and speech/communication delays. Two days a week for a few hours.

The teacher is great. The aides are great. The other kids are great. Two of them have Down's Syndrome. When I first saw them, I worried because I didn't think you were that far behind...but then I quickly realized there isn't any other group of kids with whom I'd rather have you spending time. They are beyond sweet.

So, here's to the first day of school. And progress. And new friends. And fun, new back-to-school outfits. You won't look so cute in the future. 'Arts and crafts' doesn't bode well with nice, new clothes. :)
