Hudson woke up ready and excited for his first day of school today. He kept asking all morning if it was time to go and was so happy when I finally said yes! I felt pretty confident about how he would do today, but still was holding my breath a little knowing how last year went. However, as we waited in the hallway for the classroom doors to open he was jumping up and down with excitement. He was the first one to run right in as soon as his teachers opened the doors. When I picked him up 3 hours later he was talking non-stop about all of the fun he had and telling me all about his day and how he was a good listener!
We celebrated with lunch and a milkshake at Chick-fil-a and then went home to do a few things. That's when he completely shocked me and FINALLY went poop on the potty. We have been dealing with this for almost two months now so today was a really BIG deal. I had tried every tip and trick I could read about and had been bribing him with all sorts of treats. What he wanted most was a super hero cape. I had just over an hour until the bus would arrive with the girls, so you better believe we loaded right back up in the car and hit the town searching for the perfect one.
To say he was happy would be an understatement. He put that thing on as soon as we walked out of the store and didn't take it off for 6 hours!!! He wore it to get the girls off the bus, during our playdate, at cheerleading practice and to eat his dinner. He took it off to get a bath (but only because he didn't want it to get wet) and then he put it right back on to sleep.
I am always a bit sad when I think about my baby not being a baby anymore, but I sure am loving this little boy phase!
