Big Day at School!

Jake stayed home with me or Nana most of this week, because he had a little virus.  But, he went back to school on Friday and – I’ll be honest- I was a little worried. Anytime he is out of his routine for several days, he usually has a rough time getting back in the groove.  HOWEVER, he had a GREAT first day back and even got to call and tell me something big!

My phone rang around 3:00 pm. I quickly noticed it was Faith Baptist Academy calling and just assumed it was bad news. Usually, when they call its to tell me that Jake is doing something wrong and laughing about it.  NOT the call a mom wants.  BUT, today was different. His teacher was letting him call to tell me he had gone “poo poo in the potty!!!”    This isn’t the first time he’s ever done that, but it’s the first time at school.  He was so excited, and I could tell through the phone that he was beaming with pride. 

When I got there to pick him up, he was so excited to tell me again.  I also saw on his note today that he told his teacher all day long that he wanted to go to Zaxby’s for lunch.  Ha!  He dreams big!

Jake will be getting a little brother in 10 days. His little life will change – but all for the better!
