Yesterday was the boy's first day of MDO for the school year. I don't know who was more excited, me or them. It's crazy to think how much they've changed over just these summer months of being off. We were all ready for them to be back though... don't get me wrong, I love my boys to death. But the time away is healthy for all of us.
On the way to school this yesterday morning, Brayden asked about some of his friends that had been in his MDO class last year (specifically Collin, Marlow and Ben). He was so sad when I told him they wouldn't be at school this year with him (we switched MDO programs this year). I felt kind of sad for him too, and a little guilty that I was changing his environment. He did get a little sad at the door and asked for his buddy (his blanket). Thankfully I had packed it in his backpack. He did great though, and I think he really enjoyed his class.
Connor screamed when I left him, which is not unusual for him. But he was happily playing when I picked him up, and his teacher even told me she wanted to pack him up and take him home :) Glad that he was such a sweetie for them.
The beauty of our MDO program this year is that they don't do naps at school since it ends at 1:30. I was kind of bummed about this at first, but I think it's going to work out great, because both boys were asking to nap when we got home, so not only do I get a morning to run errands and do stuff at home, but then I get to come home to a quiet house for a few hours. Score two for momma!
Here's to hoping our school year goes great!
