School has officially started!
My son Jaxon started preschool and it was one of the most emotional days I’ve experienced.
Tuesday morning at 6 am was wake up call. I randomly made up a song called “Ready for school”. Singing the song enthusiastically, loud and proud to my baby boy who was knocked out in a sleep coma.
Slowly but surely a big smile appeared on Jaxon’s face. As I said are you ready for school, he was fully awake.
Once Jaxon brushed his teeth and fully dressed I prepared him a very light breakfast of grapes and juice. The night before I prepared his backpack of all his items needed for school and set them out ready to go for the morning.
Dropping Jaxon off was so difficult for me. As we walked in the building hand in hand, my heart was happy. Jaxon was excited to start school. No tears on his part. I didn’t even say bye, I just rushed out so I wouldn’t cry.
Once I got back to my car I just sat there thinking my little baby is really in school. Being excited and emotional all at the same time because I’ve been home with my baby since he was born and I wasn’t ready to leave him just yet.
This would be the only time I would take my son to school because my husband will be dropping and picking him up each day. The first day was truly special to me that I got to take my big boy to preschool.
As I’ve stated in previous blog post, I have been out of school awhile and my nerves were super high, my anxiety was on 100. Not only was the day my son’s first day but it was also my first day as a college student.
I ended up getting to my school 30 mins before my first class. I parked way in no mans land because parking was atrocious. There I sat in my car listening to music and asking God to give me confidence to be more than a conqueror.
After about 15 minutes I headed to my first class. I got a good seat right in the front. I ended up doing the same thing for my second class English.
Overall I had a good day learning new things and meeting people. Honestly, the first day was a little overwhelming with all the information and writing. I’m confident that once I get into the swing of things with managing school, it will all come natural.
The best feeling in the entire world was when my husband and son came home. Seeing my family at the ended of the day made me realize why I’m doing this college thing. To obtain an education and degree to make myself and family proud.
Jaxon had a great first day at preschool, he walked in the front door happy and ran to give me a hug. The teacher said Jaxon did so well.
The end of the school week ended well. After my last class I stayed behind for some tutoring to freshen up some skills I had forgotten in math. It’s amazing how much you forget in a ten year span. Leaving tutoring I felt confident enough to know I can do this. College amazes me with all the resources they provide students, you just need to know how to use them effectively. This time around I’m taking advantage of everything the college has to offer.
Hopefully over time you all will see my writing improve on this blog. I know my English class will help me polish up all my grammatical errors, run on sentences and whatever else is in writing .
