First day of preschool

Carter had his first day back to preschool on Tuesday and it did not go well. He started crying before the school word was ever mentioned because he didn't want to wear his shoes. =) Then he started saying he didn't want to go to school. "I stay with you Mama." It really does break my heart but I want to be able to help in the big boys classrooms so I need him situated a few days a week. Also, the fact that the shoe part caused more of the tears helped me be strong. =) Anyway, I got him ready and wanted to take the traditional front porch pictures. He was not having it. 
First he sat and pouted...
Then he cried and wouldn't move Pooh Bear...

Then he put Pooh Bear down but gave me this heart breaking face...

Once we got in the car, he was okay but cried a little as we went to his class. He held on to me for a minute but didn't make a big fuss. As I talked to his teacher, he wandered off to play. I captured this next shot of him playing tear free less than a minute after I walked away....

When I picked him up he was all smiles. He said he missed me but he had fun! He had a great day and apparently never cried at all. Thank goodness!
So I took the pictures I was wanting to take in the morning before school. This time I got his sweet, sweet smile. LOVE my baby!!!

Awww....poor baby! Talk about some crocodile tears. I am so glad he enjoyed it in the end. Sometimes the nerves of trying something new just overtake us....even as adults. LOL

Oh Melanie! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my posts. You are not a bad blog friend! LOL! You have 3 active boys....if I had that I probably wouldn't even have a blog. LOL! Thank you for praying for us. I couldn't reply to your comments for some reason so I just thought I'd comment again here.

Ahhh how cute is Carter!!! Those first pics just break your heart don't they? :( You and I both know that he will be fine and end up having a great time (as he did!) but how sad to send him off that way. Glad he had so much fun in the end and I hope the next time goes a little more smoothly for you (and him!) xoxo
