Christopher was greeted by his sweet teacher and her assistant, who helped Christopher find his cubby and put his things away. Christopher was so glad to see his buddy Jack in his class (and Jack was glad to see Chistopher!) - there was just one problem...
The teacher had put them at different tables (smart woman!) - and neither Christopher nor Jack was happy about this arrangement. When I tried to get Christopher over to his seat, he said, "No! I sit by Jack!" I at least got him to stand by his seat so I could take a picture! Not sure how it all turned out after I left, though!
After a long first day of school, I picked him up and we headed to the Cafe' for a dish of ice cream (complete with sprinkles!) and to talk over his first day. Our conversation started with this classic exchange:
Mommy: How was your first day at school?
Mommy: Did you have fun?
Mommy: What did you do?
Christopher: I don't know.
As a teacher, I knew better than to leave it at that - so, after a little more probing, I found out that they colored a picture, sang songs, played "I spy with my litte eye," and ate "snack" ("We didn't eat lunch, Mommy - we ate snack!"). Oh, how I wish I could have been a fly on the wall to watch him on his first day! I just can't believe he's so big already! Ok...now I might cry! Sniff! Sniff! Anyone got a hanky? (wink, wink!)
