Well, it might not technically be a milestone but it sure feels like it to me. Westin had his first day of Mother's Day Out today. After researching a couple of places we decided on one that sounds like a great fit for Westin. It is small and the hours are from 9-1. He will only go on Mondays and my favorite part is that they do not take naps. I just couldn't see Westin sleeping at school so I was happy about this. I thought that might freak him out a bit.
He was all smiles this morning before we left.
His backpack is so cute and pretty much as big as him.
Once we got there, however, his smiles disappeared and he was a little nervous.
Once we got in the room he completely lost it and I almost did. I at least held it together until I was back in the hallway. I definitely shed a few tears as I was watching him through the one-way window. I know this is just a part of growing up (for him and me!) and it will be good for both of us. I just hope he gets used it pretty quickly.
Elizabeth is also taking Asa once a week and his room is next door to Westin's. We had to get a picture of the brave Mama's before we left. :) My plan today is to stay busy but I am already looking forward to 1:00!
