Cameron’s First Day of Pre-School

Here is a post that I wanted to share from my infertility website.  Hope you enjoy it.


My little boy is growing fast……..way too fast!  We got up this morning and I fixed him a nice breakfast for his first day of school.  He requested eggs so that is what Mommy fixed.  Once he was done eating…… I got him dressed, teeth brushed and then it was about time to go.  Here are a few pictures that I took of my little man and his first day of pre-school.  ENJOY!!











Seemed like yesterday when I was waiting to find out if IVF worked for us.  Waiting for that call from the infertility specialist.  Waiting on Cameron’s arrival.  Waiting for Cameron to try new baby food.  Waiting for him to walk.  NOW… I am waiting for it to be 11:30 so I can go and pick him up from pre-school. 


I left and was doing great until I got downstairs and then the tears started falling.  It is so difficult being with your children from the moment they are born and then when it comes to school… you have to put your trust into the hands of a stranger.  Someone you barely know and that is difficult.  It was difficult on me and I knew it would be hard on him too.  Just as I was ready to walk out the door… I heard him screaming for me.  Talk about breaking your heart into a million pieces. 


Once the clock said 11:15 am, I hopped into the car and off I went to pick him up.  I was so excited that I could barely control myself.  I was so happy to go and pick him up and hear about his day.  I arrived and went inside.  He was sitting at a table waiting for me.  He was watching all of the other kids and parents and looked so sad waiting on me.  Once he saw me, he ran to me and I picked him up.  He squeezed me so hard around my neck I thought my head would “pop” off, but it was all good.  He told me that he missed me, that he cried, but he also told me that he had fun.  Nothing like more tears falling down MY face.  Hope I get use to this soon because it breaks my heart when I have to leave him.  I know it is great for him and I know he enjoys it especially after he gets use to it, but boy oh boy do I ever miss him when he is gone.

Until Next Time ~ Blessings to all BIG and small.

I know what you mean Lisa!...We're on our 4th week of school already...At least I don't have to leave Luke kicking and screaming like I did for the few months he went last school year...But it is soooooo hard entrusting him in the care of others when I want to spend my day with him and protect him...Just the beginning of a new school year, but I think we'll both do just fine while our little men are off learning...BIG HUGS!!~~Jen

Thank you Lisa for sharing Cameron's first day of school! There are tears on my cheeks too. Enjoy all the "firsts" there are so many more ahead. It does get a bit easier over time.
Bless you~

Awww, Sad...
I would have turned right around and scooped him right back up...
of course them I'd have put him right back down and hoped like heck the teacher didn't call the police and have me arrested!
None of mine ever cried... But it was still hard to hand them over to a stranger. I had to make myself stay outside and wait for the bell to pick them back up though!
I'm such an over protective Mother...

Awwwww, it is HARD letting go, I remember my son starting preschool and I cried too, pretty much for the whole 3 hours he was there, LOL! He looks so cute with his bookbag:)

I know exactly how you feel. But it will get better, for both of you.
My little granddaughter went to preschool last year and started indergarten a few weeks ago. They grow so fast!

He'll get use to you dropping him off, then knowing you'll always come back. Some kids cry, some don't even look back at mommy, or say bye. :-) I tell moms at church, simply drop and run, or it will make the crying even longer. My older 3 just started high school ~ where does time go??
