First day of Preschool

Today was Cole's first day of preschool at the Child Development Lab on the UCM campus. I got up and took a shower while he was watching Mickey and when I got out this is what I saw... He had gotten into the pantry and gotten out chili cheese Fritos. That is the breakfast of champions and I am sure it started his day off just right. :-) Funny thing is, I don't even eat these things, and never buy them, but Cole got to pick out a "treat" at the Wal-Mart checkout and this is what he got. I guess it is better than sugary candy. I did fix him a well balanced breakfast after that though!

Here is his "cheese" smile before heading out the door.

And a real smile.

Putting his stuff in his cubby when he got to school.

Getting ready to play.

They said he did good, but he had a couple of meltdowns. Surprise, surprise! He got up at the crack of dawn today (5:45am) and I could not get him to back to sleep despite my best efforts. So, he started the day off extremely tired. They said his meltdowns were when he realized I left and then again right after lunch. Not too bad for his first day I guess.

I did enjoy my time alone, but missed my lil' guy too. I was there to pick him up early, but they were in the car gym so I had to wait until he got back to the classroom to get him.

He said he had fun so I consider it a successful first day. Looking forward to what the rest of the school year holds in store!
