Today was the big day. The first day of kindergarten for The Kid.
Yeah, the years flew.
He was nervous. He wouldn’t say it but it was obvious. Shit, I was nervous. It was obvious and I’d tell anyone who’d ask. I was dreading the day. I thought the worst.
And, as always, I was wrong. The Kid handled it like a pro. Absolute pro. Now, only like 162 more days to go.
To prepare him, and us, we bought a few kindergarten books about starting and preparing for the first day of school. For him, not for us. Here are a couple of the titles along with a few more to hopefully make the transition a little easier.
