Today sucked (and it isn't even 9am). Marco woke up before Alessandro left for work and wanted daddy desparately. He has figured out that mom takes him to school and dad rescues him, so if dad just stayed, he wouldn't have to go to school. As Alessandro was driving off on his motorcycle, Marco was sobbing.

After calming him down and getting him some breakfast. I managed to pack his lunch and take a shower. We left a little later than I wanted to (I had an 8am telecon) and he fought me, screaming and squirming when I tried to put him in his car seat. He cried the whole way to school (ok, I realize it is less than half a mile, but it still sucked). When we got out of the car, he got out of the carseat crying, walked down the steps on his own with his lunch box crying. It was like he knew he had to do it, but didn't want too.

I got him calmed down a little before I left, but I had to kind of rush off, so that sucked. Also, he was in a different room because his regular teacher doesn't arrive until 8, so it was a woman he doesn't really know yet who had to comfort him. It just really sucked.
