First day of Pre-K

Today was Dawson's first day of Preschool. He wasn't overly thrilled, he did know that he was keeping his mom happy by being a good boy and going to school like every big boy should. He is in the afternoon class so at lunch he was trying to convince me of why he thinks he should stay home and it sounded something like this: "I love you very much mommy and that is why I think I need to just stay home with you today." Doesn't that just melt your heart? But just for a second and then it's back to the real world - oh yeah, he is just saying that to get of going to school! Didn't work, he went to school and he was such a good boy. He went in happily - no melting down on the spot or crying - and the teacher said he was a good boy - no crying. (I can't say I hate it when he is a momma's boy, because I really do enjoy knowing that he needs me.)
He got a new backpack, Star Wars or as he calls it "Lego Star Wars". He is in love with the game on our xbox. I took him and Madison to the movie last Saturday, "Clone Wars", and he said about a dozen times during the movie "Mom, I love this movie!" (out loud for all those around to hear!) Then when the movie was over he said "Mom, we have to buy this movie!" He was a crack up!
