"Nick, I love you! Have a good day!" I call, waving desperately. "Nick?"
He doesn't even turn around. My kindergartner is boarding the bus, on his very first day of school and he doesn't even turn around to wave at his mommy.
I wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that I'm blowing kisses and snapping pictures of him through the bus window while all the older kids stare at me like I'm some kind of dangerous animal.
Nah. Couldn't be that.
I have to meet his bus in an hour and I'm so anxious to see how his first day went. He couldn't sleep last night, or eat his breakfast this morning because he was so excited. And maybe a bit nervous. He kept asking me things like:
"What if i can't find my locker?"
"I can't remember where my class is!"
"What if I can't remember when to get off the bus?"
"Do you think I can play outside?"
I assured him that there would be teachers and bus drivers to help, but I could still see the gears turning around and around in his little head.
I so hope his first day went well. I get butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it. God, kids are nerve wracking.
