The Tears Are Gone

Today was day two of no tears in the morning. He is now anxious to go get on the bus and practically runs out the door once he’s dressed and has his backpack on. It only took him a week and even this past week the tears weren’t that bad, it was just whining about not wanting to get dressed and a slight hesitation to get on the bus.

This is Jaxon on Monday. He didn't even want to get dressed because he knew he was going to school. I'm happy this is no longer our mornings.

Today he broke my heart a little bit, I was holding his hand by the road and once the bus stopped and opened the door, he jerked his little hand out of mine and climbed up the big bus steps by himself.

My baby is really growing up. He now goes to school in big boy undies and yesterday it seems he had an accident but they changed him and he’s doing good. I’m so very proud of him! His teacher is happy that he’s transitioned so well into the school routine and has sent me home a few notes telling me how well he’s doing. There is nothing better than getting a note from a teacher saying how good your baby is doing in school!

  1. i didn’t have to experience this at all with any of my children and in a way i am kinda sad. some may think that is weird but it kinda makes a mom feel good knowing that their child needs them during a time like this. i guess my kids were ready to be rid of me for a few hours each day. LOL! Congrats on his accomplishment.

    They grow up so fast. Before you know it he will be graduating high school and you will be the one crying. I didn’t think I would get emotional when my son graduated but I cried like a baby.

    I so glad he is doing so well. We have one more grandson at home and I don’t even want to think about him going to school. Which is very soon.

  4. That’s awesome! Glad he is doing well!

    Glad to hear he is making such good progress. Ah but it is sweet and bitter at the same time to see your children grow up. Enjoy them each and every day as they grow so fast! My youngest is 22 and 1000 miles away at Chiropractic school. I look forward to our first grandchild (a boy) due in a few weeks.

  6. Congrats on the progress!
