This Nigerian Mother Dropped Her Son Off For His First Day At School, And We Can So Relate With Her Reaction



Many Schools resumed for the new school year yesterday, and many mothers sent their kids back to school with mixed reactions. For mothers sending their kids to school for the first time, the reaction is mostly strong excitement mixed with anxiety.

Fashion blogger, Ella Mo’s reaction as her son starts school for the first time is so relatable.

She wrote:

This must be the toughest time and decision for your dad and I.. We told the school bus to please leave this morning because we wanted to take you ourselves and see you match gloriously into class with strangers! OMG! I cried so much I wanted to take you back home with me!

But I want you to learn! But I also want you with me! I started to think of how to become a teacher maybe I will just sit at home and teach you! Boubacar I just want you by my side always! Tick tock… Im counting seconds, minutes and hours! I wonder if I can wait for the school bus to drop you home! Im coming to get you! I CANT DEAL!!”

Did your child start school yesterday? How did you react?
