Back to School Take 2

*cue yellow school bus*Things got a little bit complicated when it came to putting Mr. Boy in school. No big deal, it worked out for the best. We got Mr. Boy into our 1st choice school, and he got a very extended Winter Break while we waited for a spot. Mr. Boy was getting nervous about starting a new school, so we did a back to school feast again. Mr. Boy picked Pizza & Pancakes for dinner and reminded us all that our motto was "Be Nice." We had prepped Mr. Boy, and reminded him that in September he was nervous to start a new school but it turned out fine, so it will be fine this time. He seemed to be in good spiritsalthough that smile looks a little tense. When I left the classroom, he had turned a paste-y white. Two hours later my phone rang, another mom called to let me know when she was at the school volunteering Mr. Boy was doing great. I felt a weight off my shoulder and when I picked him up... he had a great day! Phew! It's terrifying when you send one of your most prized posessions out into the scary big world. Hooray for good days!

I'm so glad that he did well. That means he will probably do well at the school here after I kidnap him.
