Today was Jackson’s first day of PreK (free here in NYC!), which we have eagerly been looking forward to all summer. Jackson hopped out of bed this morning at 5 am, saying, “Mommy!! I’m so excited for pre-kindergarten!” The past few weeks have been a test of patience and endurance as excitement reached a fevered pitch and we counted down the days to “big boy school.” And now it’s here, and Jackson will be in school six and a half hours a day, five days a week. Someone pinch me, I’m dreaming.
