Ayaan was so excited to go to his own school. He was the happiest baby on the block. He got dressed quickly and listened to whatever I asked him to do.
Picked up his toys, turned off the TV, put the story books away and waited patiently while I got his snack ready. I forgot to buy him a lunch pail the last time we went shopping so I had to choose between a grocery bag or his toy backpack. I chose the toy backpack. He looked so adorable. I just love this little boy.

Another reason could be that Ayaan did what I had expected. He looked out for me. He is so used to having me in the room with him. Be it at the StrongStart play and learn sessions or the recent observation day. When he realized that I wasn't in the room, he started crying. . The teacher aide took him and made him sit beside her while the other teacher started circle time. As soon as they started singing the "hey there, hi there" song, Ayaan stopped crying and joined in the fun. I left the center with a very gratifying and proud feeling.
Sitting in the car I thought to myself...I sure have grown as a Mommy.
