1st day of MDO!

Yesterday was my sweet boys first day of MDO!  He has never been old enough to go before, because his birthday is so late but I think it worked out being the perfect time for my lil man to start "school"!  We have been talking about school the last couple of weeks, & I think the "school" episode of Yo Gabba Gabba really helped to get him ready!  
The night before I got his little backpack ready, packed his lunch & knew we were ready to go the next morning!
I still can't believe this is my BABY with a backpack on & carrying a LUNCH BOX!  It feels like just YESTERDAY we were bringing him home from the hospital!
I sure do love that sweet smile!  =)
He was so happy & ready to go for the day, so I knew it was going to go well.  I think I was more worried about myself than I was about him!  Ha!
We even got Mary Beth to take some of the both of us outside!
He just wrapped his arms around me & started squeezing me when she was taking our picture...it made this Mama's heart FULL!  =)
Ready to go to SCHOOOOL!
He was too anxious to get into the building to take a picture outside...so this was as good as it got!  He walked straight in the door, dropped his backpack & lunch box on the floor & walked in & started to play!  Didn't even look at me, kiss me, or say good-bye!  But I guess that was okay, because I didn't have to worry about him after leaving!

I went to class & then I ran a few errands around town getting last minute stuff for his birthday party!

I took these cups (which I copied off of Pinterest) to his three teachers...little do they know what the year holds for them with my wild child!

He was happy to see me when I went to pick him up & his teachers said he was great all day, except for during nap time.  I asked a MILLION questions to him in the car & he just kept saying, "yesss" "yesss!"  So I wasn't really sure what he did during the day!
It wasn't until a few hours later that I opened his backpack & folder to find THIS!  I ABOUT DIIIIED!  I didn't know whether to be upset or just laugh.  I am a little bit upset, but it WAS his first day & the first time he has been around other kids for that long & we have seriously been working on sharing, so I guess it will just take time.  & the poor kid loves to hug on people & I'm sure that's what the "keeping hands to self" part means.  I know he doesn't mean anything by it, he is just trying to be sweet.  & I'm not surprised about nap time either, because he doesn't even take naps at home in his own bed, much less in a new place on a mat on the floor!  ha!

So...we have a lot to work on over the year, but I have been trying to talk to him about it every once & a while so he understands.  I told him I want him to have smiley faces, not sad faces!

All in all, he had a great first day, & Mama wasn't too upset!  I know how much he is going to learn, grow & excel & can't wait to watch & enjoy the ride with him!



  1. How exciting for you and Ryder! If it makes you feel any better my first day of school wasn't the best either. Apparently I stomped around and wouldn't sit with the rest of the group! Ha! Your cups are precious also! Such a neat idea!
