I will start by sharing.
DS started school on Monday. At his school all the parents were taking pictures and video taping their kids' first day in the front of the school lawn. I brought my camera, too, pictures didn't come out too good.
DS made every effort to throw himself on the floor in front of the school a few times with no tantrums.
I have one picture with the assistant teacher holding DS with both her arms and DS being horizontal in her arms. He did not cry, but he was excited to see the toys and run around the classroom. We met the teacher last week for DS to be familiar with the room and for us to sign paperwork.
When I picked up DS from daycare, I asked him if he had a good day at school and he said "no." Did you make friends? "no." Did you like your teachers? "no." (DS is in a "no" phase).
DH and I will never know what happened that first day of school. Only the teacher and the assistant knows and will remember what really happened. All I know is that DS was happy.
