So my plan to leave everything until the last minute so I could be super busy and not think about it worked like a charm. I got his chair bag finished at midnight in the car/truck fabric that he picked out.
He did so well today and when Glen bough him home I was expecting a very grumpy and tired face, but he bounced out of the car with the biggest smile. It is really hard to get out of him details of his day but he did a great job coping with so many new faces and environment. I am sure that we will have our bad days over the term too but at least we started on a goodie.
I knew I needed to be confident and positive mum from the moment that my head came off the pillow this morning, for his sake alone. And it occurred to me that the only thing I should be feeling is proud and give him something to live up to. So not a tear was shed today, just the beaming smile of joy was exchanged and who knew that I could learn a great lesson at the first day of prep too.
