First Day of First Grade

heroesWe have officially said so long to summer.  At approximately 8:30 am Thursday morning, Corbin started 1st grade.  It is really hard for me to get my head wrapped around the fact that he is not in Kindergarten any longer.  I would prefer to keep him sweet, young and innocent for as long as I possibly can!

He has already started using words like annoying with perfect placement in a sentence.  ”Mom, you are so annoy-ying.”  That is pronounced with two y sounds, too!  I realized that part of his sweetness is being chipped away at when he uses these big words that he picks up from older kids!! Oh, well!  What do you do?  Put them in the closet until they turn 18?  Think I’d get in trouble for that?  Probably so. And besides, one of the many joys of being a parent is watching your child grow up, right?  It’s what we have to do as parents.  Let them grow, nurture them along the way to the best of our abilities and pray they don’t turn out like Marilyn Manson!

So here he is in all of his first day of 1st grade splendor.

I love him dearly, mo-hawk and all.
