Tatum's 1st day of school


Well here we are - I dropped her off, Thank God that Andy was able to go with me today or I would not have done as well and I did. Even though I am not ashamed to cry with him I do try to be a little tougher with him around. We went in and walked her around showed her all the toys and such, I set up her crib and then went over her (now) schedule with her teacher - Trivia is her name and I am not sure if I spelled that right or not. Anyway I was good until it was time to leave - I made it out of her room, almost to the front door and then the tears started. They didn't stop until I got to work, and they are just on time out right now. I can feel them welling up and I have to talk myself out of crying all over again.




Well here are her pictures - notice only one of her and I ... didn't want proof that I cried like a baby.

Locked and loaded, ready for the drive.
Yeah our first day of school.

Tatum with her teacher I promise she was smiling before the picture took.

awwwww...she'll be okay! :0) and, it's good that you're getting her used to it now, before the baby comes, so that it'll just be part of her routine!! she looks cute for her 1st day of school! :0)

And I forgot to post that I think you should go with Safari (only because that was the one we were going to get if we had a boy) :-)

Lordy, there's nothing like that first drop-off. I went to my car and bawled like a baby. Tatum looks like she was happy though!

(know that she's gaining great stuff...social interaction, baby independence, etc....even though you want to cry)

I just started leaving derrick at school a month ago. It was rough!!! Now he is for the most part adjusted very well. I still have a tough time. He still hates monday's.

Hey friend! I'm glad that daycare is going well. Tatum looks like a happy little trooper! You're hair looks great!

That's a HARD day!!! I swear, it never gets easier. My daughter practically sprinted into the building of her 3-year-old pre-school class...and I was jogging behind her, sobbing and out of breath...
