My sweet little boy went to nursery for the first time today. Some people may not think its a big deal but I do! I've been in Primary for a few months now so Kenyon has been taking him but Kenyon has just been called as Young Men's Secretary so we had to go ahead and send Berick to nursery.
The first glitch we needed to work out before he went was nap time. Right now church goes from 1-4 and Berick naps from 2-5 so as you can see there's a bit of a problem. People with little, napping children know that napping on Sundays is crazy hard! So what did we do? We got Berick to nap for 3 hours BEFORE church! It was amazing! Now that he was going to be a rested boy for nursery I didn't feel nearly as bad about leaving him.
Then the hard part comes. Berick is a champ and doesn't have a hard time being left if he's occupied but I still have a hard time leaving him. We brought him in the room and he started playing with toys and I kissed him with a teary eye and went to Primary. I guess Kenyon stayed on a little longer. When it was time for Kenyon to leave he kissed Berick and Berick said "bye" and that was that. I checked on him when I could by peaking through the window and he just looked so grown up! At one point he was just sitting at the table coloring a little cube (that I'm keeping forever) and being so good! Needless to say when it was time to get him I booked it over to the nursery and Kenyon and I went in together. Apparently the only time he cried was when they picked up all the toys in preparation for snack time. Other than that he was a good boy!
I know its not a huge thing but I just felt so much pride that my guy did so well in there. He is growing up so fast and I love him so much! I am amazed how much he is learning these days and how much he needs me but loves independence. He comes to me for cuddles and when he is hurt but other than that he is his own little man!
Thanks for reading my sappy story :) Also I continuously promise pics but again I don't have any. Most of the people that read this blog know my on facebook and can catch some recent pics there. Stay tuned for some exciting up coming posts!
