One thing I know is this; Conner is very self confident. Yesterday we had the following conversation:
Conner: Mom, you know how I'm so good at driving?
Me: Conner, don't brag.
Conner: I'm not bragging Mom. I'm just really good at it!
Hope today goes as well as yesterday!

Conner's been dreading today for a while and has shed many tears this past week over it. He woke up several times last night, crying and scared. This morning the fear was compounded. It didn't help that while we were in Galveston this past weekend, someone put pepper spray or pepper sauce on all my car door handles. Yesterday after we loaded up the car and went to the pool, both Conner and I were overcome with burning eyes. At the time I thought we just got sunscreen in them. Well since it happened again this morning, I took a closer look and noticed the nice gift some idiot left us. Off we went to the nurses office to wash out his swelling eye. Now Conner was scared, hurting and screaming. My nerves were shot as I felt I had no control over the situation. I left about 10 minutes later and got a call from the nurse while I was on the road to work. Conner's eye is better but he doesn't want to go to class. I know...big surprise. I pray to God that something magically happens and Conner has a wonderful first day! Miracles do happen, right?

I can’t believe you are starting second grade today. I remember my first day of second grade. I was very nervous about meeting new friends, and sad to be away from my Mommy and Daddy. After a few days, things got better. I met some really great kids who became my friends (and even a boyfriend). I also started to enjoy class a little more each day.
I wanted you to have this special coin to keep in your pocket and remind you how proud I am of the wonderful young man you are. You are so smart and talented Conner. I’m the happiest Mom in the world. Never forget that.
As you start the new school year, you may feel scared or sad at times, but this will pass. Meet new people and remember to be kind to others so they will be kind to you. I hope you have a ton of fun and learn a whole lot too. I will always be here for you to talk to about anything. If you’re happy or sad, excited or mad; whatever you’re feeling I’m here for you. I hope you have a great first day of school. I’m so proud of you.

Meet Margie! As you know, Margie is Papa Jay's better half (haha). She makes everything in his life, and ours, better! I swear Margie considers you her grandchild. She has a deep love for you that only a mother or grandmother could know. To her, you are perfect and can do no wrong.
What I've shown you today, is just a small example of the love and fun you and Margie share. I know there are many more good times to be had and look forward to sharing them with the two of you!

Meme is also the best cook you've ever known. About a month ago, I had made you Chicken Alfredo and you stated "this would be PERFECT if you made the spaghetti like Meme does!" You also love her pickles. For Christmas last year, that's what you wanted from her and guess what; you got it. Check out the prized possession below. After you eat all the pickles you always try to get me to let you make Popsicles with the pickle juice but it grosses me out! You'd eat her pickles at every meal if I let you!
Over the years, Meme has made you a vast collection of blankets that you dearly love. Last Christmas, she gave you the warm camouflage blanket below. You snuggle with it every night and lets just say you're not so good at sharing "your blankets that Meme made for YOU!" These are treasures you will forever cherish.
Meme, thanks for all the special things you do for Conner and me! We are very blessed to have you for a Grandmother and grateful to share our lives with you!
