my onlie started school already and the usual crying child was very evident in him since they are only 5 in the class. my onlie is a boy. however, amidst his beggings and given wishes for me to stay in the back of the room for a couple of days granted, once the discussion or play talk of the teacher regarding shapes or colors started his crying would stop and he would answer every question of the teacher. this is even though he is not being talked to individually. the teacher was at first tickled with this and couldn't suppress a smile since the loud cry would be replaced by a loud voice saying: "circle", "square", "red".... the bragging hasn't started yet . they were given a seatwork to which i as a parent knew nothing about based from my sittings and lessons from their book. my toddler got perfect! any braggings with first time mommies out there? i want to hear them .

I remember these days, when my little ones went off to school for the first time. I have four children and they are now in grades 11, 9, 8 and 5. Time goes by so quickly, cherish the memories.

i know what you mean. when i get to hug my son it seems like i'm not hugging or kissing anymore a baby but a child. not to mention he is starting to smell like one . i hope his openness to my hugging and kissing wouldn't end too soon .

I know exactly what you mean about the hugging. So far I've been really lucky as both my sons still let me hug them but my daughters who are the older ones don't seem to like it as much. I still get hugs back, but they are not as tight. I miss all those hugs and "sticky jam" kisses.
