First Day of School...

One child extremely excited to be in first grade, got up extra early, got dressed, excited to ride the bus and excited to see her old friends at school. Got there, got nervous, only two old classmates in her class but still extremely happy and excited with her teacher and to be back at school.

One child threw the covers back over her head, did not want to wake up, did not want to get dressed, cried when I forced her to get up, made me walk her into into her classroom. Could have cared less who her teacher was (she is new to the school btw) could have cared less that her classroom was new, wanted to play with all the new toys in her pre-k classroom and did not want to do anything the teacher nor the assistant teacher asked of her except she found her name and actually hung up her school bag. Amazing.

One extremely tired Mama who has to do this all over again tomorrow, sigh! Where is the nearest day spa?
