First day back!!!!!

Hi everyone.Ok who else`s household was stressed this morning with little one`s back to school.Please don`t say it was just mine!Sam went back today,but Danielle`s not till tomorrow.So that didn`t please the little chap.Well we had tears before we even left the house,over shoes,his 3 button polo top(he wanted the 2 button ones he had before summer,but i couldnt find any anywhere)So were waiting to go in,everything fine till we get`s inside, the tears start again.What else can you say to reassure them,when i have said everything i can possibly think of.He is a worrier like me,i hate to say,i wish he wasn`t for his sake.Ok,quick stop of to the toilets get some tissue,deep breath and of we go upto his new classroom.Everything fine found where his stuff went and they had to draw something they did in the 6 weeks hols.So sam starts his picture of when we went to blackpool and he saw the red arrows.Still ok,now it`s time to leave!!The flood gates open once again "i want you to stay,don`t go"In the end i left him with the teacher,gave him a big kiss said it would be ok and had to leave.Ok why have i got the ones that cry and not the ones that basically aren`t fazed by anything and just do it.Even Danielle got over the tears when she got into yr1.He`s now yr2.I thought he`d got over it by now........Now rant over onto my card.I`ve used my new tilda and coloured her with promarkers.The sketch is from WOJ challenge,and the papers are Henbury lane by papermania.I have used my new Marianne creatable doily and used the flower die that was with it.Loving these!
The flowers are from wild orchid craft,pearls are from the hobby house and the ribbon was from stash.

To reasure you a bit Kelly, boys are all the same. My boy is 18 next Wednesday and he still neads the occasional hug and reasurance. Just go with it and just keep up the "your a great boy for me you" and all will be ok. The teachers won't hurt him, he will be fine.
I do feel for you, it's awful. I see this on a daily basis as I run a Playgroup.....It's my mum's that are usually crying aswell!!!!
