I was never worried about William and Alexander being together in preschool. Or actually, for that matter… Alexander and Benjamin together in preschool. I always just knew they’d be good together — call it a mother’s intuition.
And I just knew my Benjamin and Henry would be just as good together, too (OK, I hoped…).
Today was bittersweet. Henry’s my baby. Like my BABY. We’ve gone back and forth for the last year trying to decide if we want to go for a 5th or not… we still don’t know. So in all honesty, Henry could be my – well, baby. I remember finding out I was pregnant with Henry while William was in preschool. I cannot believe he’s actually there now, as a student! It’s mind-boggling to me, just mind-boggling.
These were my little men heading off to preschool today…
But the best was when we were heading to school this morning to drop them off – we had a 100% brother moment.
Henry asked Matt, “”Am I allowed to scratch Ben at school?”
Um. NO. You’re not.
Then we dropped them off. The nerves and the feelings started to well up…
And as the tears started to roll down my cheeks, the only thing that made me smile was having Matt re-tell me that line about the scratching – Henry will never know just how much that question warmed my heart.
Oh, my Henry.
And for the record – there was no scratching on the first day.
