Rough Day

My sweet Connor started school on Monday and it was such a bitter-sweet day for me. Connor is such a handful, and I kept saying that I couldn't wait for him to start school so it would give me a break. Well, when they told me he could start school as soon as Monday October 6th, I just started crying. I feel like I don't know him very well, and the only time that I didn't know that he had any problems, he was a baby and I always felt that special bond with him, but now as a toddler he doesn't communicate very well with us and it has been so sad and frustrating. I have this wish that he will do amazingly well in school and start talking like crazy and then he can come home and be with me and not have to go to school until Kindergarten. He only goes to school for 2 hours, and the little break is nice, but I would give anything to have him be able to talk to me and tell me all the things he has been trying to tell me for the last year and a half and just be at home with me. He is so sweet and lovable. The batteries in my camera died right as I was getting ready to take him to school, but luckily my mom's cousin came to the rescue and she let me use her camera. She will be e-mailing me the pictures soon and then I will post them. He looks so big and so stinkin' cute with his spiderman backpack(ba-pa) and he gets to ride the bus. Yes it is the short bus. Ask me if I feel like a complete jerk for making fun of people who ride the short bus to school. I would tease with my friends and say, "Yeah, well you ride the short bus to school!" thinking that it was funny. Well not so much now! It was a rough day:(

Doug and Kristi have kept us a little up-to-date on Connor and his progress. I cried when Chase went to preschool too because when he got there it was obvious how different he was from the other kids. At home, he was just Chase and it didn't matter. But the kids love him and treat him so good. I'm sure they will Connor too. I'd love to talk therapists with you some day even though the only one we have left is MaryAnn. Hang in there...you're doing a great job, I know it's hard. Kellie
