The time has come.
My son had his first day of school this past week. Michelle and I spent the past few weeks getting him ready and telling what it would be like and when the time came, it paid off. Jayden walked right up on the bus took his seat and smiled the whole way. I could not have been more proud of him.
I have spent the past 5 years trying to prepare my son for this moment. Not necessarily going to school but the experience of leaving the umbrella of his home and parents and out into the real world on his own. I have done my best to teach him to respect adults, to help him be brave in moments of fear (see my previous post), let him know that not all people in this world will love him or even like him.
But by far, the most important thing….
