Today is Alex’s first day at school, and even though he is only in a preschool program, he is going for a full day, five days a week. Last week saw us in full back to school shopping mode and I find today feels like a big transition. I suppose every mother asked herself some version of “where did my little baby go? this morning at drop off. I’ve spent the day catching up on a summer’s worth of emails and to dos (with blogging on the top of list!). This video from the Princeton Architectural Press (for a new line of notebooks in collaboration with The Brooklyn Art Library) seemed so cheery and upbeat on a day that is just a little bittersweet in this household.
My guys, on the way to drop off. Alex doesn’t have to wear a tie to school, but his best friend goes to a school with uniforms, so now Alex likes to put on a tie in the morning (“just like Daddy and Jules”).
