Well I must be doing something right in this parenting gig. Yesterday Big Brother started Grade 1. It is his first year going to school for the full day. When we got to school in the morning he saw a friend from SK and then the spotted their teacher. He has the same teacher as last year. Off he went running to Mrs. G to give her a hug and say good morning. She was surronded by all the Grade 1′s and Big Brother was in his own world. Talking to friends, Showing Mrs. G his new backpack and so on.
I no longer existed I called his name and I was ignored. I had to actually go over and turn him around to get a hug and kiss from him. My friend was calling his name to tell him to have a good day and he did not hear us. Her son was trying to say morning and he did not hear him. Her son had to go over to Big Brother to get his attention.
Though I was sad my son ran off to his friends and teacher without a hug or kiss or good bye I was happy knowing that I must be doing something right and he is well adjusted in confident in this world.
