day one

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.
- Dr. Seuss


And they're off. Mak and Tato are officially preschoolers. As i dropped them off at school, there was the expected tears in the eyes and lump in the throat. Only they were mine.

Aww... the boys are moving into a new era in their lives. Of course it can be a bit unnerving for their mama : )

OMG what a milestone! I can't believe time has passed by so fast! But I just can imagine how you feel. Hugs!

PS: How is the school system in the Philippines? It starts in June?

at least they spared you the stress of holding tight to your hand while tears roll down their faces. seems like only yesterday, i was walking a sad, apprehensive little child to that very same school....

Dear Mom,
Please don't rat me out on my blog. I told the boys I cried three SECONDS. Back me up here.

Hi Cely.
Most schools here start in June although a few follow international schedules.
Thank you for always, always sending your comments

I've been reading a lot of posts in FB about 1st days and the tears... of the moms! Just reading about them, including yours, I have to swallow a few times too! I am apprehensive about my turn!

You and your mom - ROFTL!!!! Good thing the boys can't read this.

Nana, if it is helpful one day in the future you can tell your boys about the tantrums I threw in my first WEEKS of school. Chonana has the fotos to prove it too, unfortunately.
