Roman woke up this morning ready for school! After only one prior day at school, he was smiling and ready to go. He helped me pack his backpack and prepare to leave. On the way there, we stopped and he picked out his own lunchable, which made him very happy. He walked into school with a smile on his face and his head up. His teacher opened the gate and he walked in on his own. A few minutes later, I walked past his classroom hoping he wouldn't spot me but he did. He yelled "Mommy." When I looked back he said "school" with a proud smile on his face and waived bye!
You may not know what an accomplishment and a surprise this is. Roman has been the child who went to nursery screaming and clinching my arms for months now. He has been the one full of fear. But, today I saw a new side of Roman. I was so proud of him and he was proud of himself!
