We're now going on our second week of school. The first week (3 days) went great. The boys got up early, took showers, and were ready to go early every morning. They came home everyday and told me all of the exciting things they did that day. That all changed last Monday. When I dropped the boys off, Ty started crying. He said he missed me when he was at school and he just wanted to stay with me. I explained to him that I had to go to school too, and that he would be fine until I picked him up that afternoon.
This has gone on everyday since then. Actually, somedays, he starts in at night. He won't even play with Hunter after school, he comes and snuggles up beside me and cries about missing me and not wanting to go to school the next day. This absolutely breaks my heart.
I'm hoping this is just a short phase. I've been home with him since he was a little over a year old, and even last year when he started Kindergarten, I worked at his school, so he got to see me anytime he wanted to. Maybe it will just take him some time to get adjusted.
Just a funny little side note, Hunter was talking this weekend about joing the boy scouts. Ty heard everything Hunter was saying about it, and decided he wanted to join too. He was asking me all about it. I told him they would have meetings every Tuesday while I was in class and Daddy would take him and Hunter. Then, with tears in his eyes, Ty said, "I wish I was a girl so I could be a girlscout then you would have to go with me to my meetings!"
Gotta love that kid!
