Meet the Teacher & The First Day

It's back-to-school time, which means a change in teachers for Manny at Mother's Day Out. Last Wednesday night was "Meet the Teacher", so we went to his class to check things out. His new teacher has a British accent and he is pretty intrigued by that. I think he gets that from me, as I've always been intrigued by British accents too, and may or may not secretly wish I had that accent. But he really seems to like her as well as the room, so that is great!
Tuesday was his first day, and here we are before leaving the house. I think he looks SO old in this picture!!
I don't know if he understood things were changing or not, but he was so excited to go to school. He and Little Red were galloping and galloping and galloping around the kitchen.
When we got there, I asked him if I could take his picture before we went in. This is the reaction I got. It's like he was thinking about it, then got excited. Ha!
I think he looks SO grown up and precious! My friend Hillary made his outfit and I just love it. He had a great first day! His teacher seems to have really good procedures in place and high expectations of the kids, which I think is great...especially for a little firecracker like Manny. :)


  1. How is it possible that they're old enough for the 2yr old class? My girl's first day was last week and she LOVES it too! Great to see such a happy Manny!

  2. He is so adorable!!! I'm going to copy your stuff when I have kids :)

  3. So, so exciting...and I know he'll have a wonderful year!

  4. how adorable is he!
    hope he had a good first day

  5. He is so stinkin' cute! I cannot believe how much he has grown. Oh, and that outfit is adorable. You truly have the best dressed kids :)

  6. Oh my word, Manny is pure cuteness!!!!!!!!

  7. Do you know if the lady who made Manny's outfit sells them to others? I would love to buy my son that outfit?!

    1. Yes, she does! You can contact her on her blog:

  8. Oh bless.. I just love him and you too! Seriously, how cute is he with his little backpack? Our babies are growing up way too fast. Mason starts back at MMO the first week in Sept but I don't think he will be nearly as excited as Manny is. M is just so shy! And Hillary did a great job on his outfit. I want one for M and C!

  9. So cute! He's getting so big.

  10. He looks so excited. What a smile!

    I would love for you to link it up to my Back to School Traditions link up!

  11. Oh, I'm sorry. You said something? I was blinded by the off-the-charts-adorable-two-year-old-in-a-matching-personalized-seersucker-outfit-complete-with-mathcing-backpack. Continue on. Just give me a minute to pick myself up off the floor. I may have lost consciousness from all the cuteness going on.

    Next time, please warn us. What if I read this while I was holding the baby? Can you imagine? I would have dropped him and he would have cried and then I would have spent the next 20 years wondering if every time he did a bone-headed thing if it was because I dropped him when he was three months old. Please. For the children. :)


  12. Manny looks adorable - love his precious little outfit. Both of your children have the sweetest little faces! And, your hair looks gorgeous by the way - love the way you style your waves (and wish I had a few waves of my own). Glad to hear Manny is enjoying being 'back to school!'
