I like that "pack a lunch". Our Hero is not going into The Wilderness unprepared.


I agree. I think the fact that he didn't protest is a good sign. How was his mood when he got home today?

His mood was good!

I was expecting a little change of schedule fallout but it was really okay.

I think it really helped when we discovered that the new let-out time coincides with two of the she-hooligan's recess. Since we ride bikes to school we have to park in the back where the playground is. When we left the building two of the little beauties ran up yelling "Mo! Mo! Play with us!" We hung out until we were run off since I didn't have a visitor's pass. I'll go in the office a little early tomorrow and get some kind of official clearance to be in back during school hours blahblahblah.

I think we'll survive.

That's good to hear. I'm hoping that Mo will loosen up a bit as he settles into the routine and he and teacher get to know each other better.

That sounds great! Maybe more time at school will actually work out better for Mo.

Yay! I know that you've said that day one (of whatever) tends to go better than day two, so will send "hope it goes well" vibes tomorrow, too. But still, yay. And the she-hooligan stuff is cool, too.

Every so often the universe is kind to small boys with baggage.

Of course, you're kind all the time.

Hold your dominion.
