Now it's Gavin's turn for Pre-K to start! So proud of my big 4yr old! No tears for anyone today, including me!
Someone was raring to go this morning! So much for my shy little guy!
Drop off couldn't have gone smoother today! Both were super excited and eager to get going with their class!
I couldn't say the same so I made sure to keep busy while they were gone- doing laundry, paying bills, making phone calls I otherwise couldn't with my 2 loud speakers that are usually in the background. I thought had done it, gone a couple of hours without both of them on my heals and my heart wasn't aching... that is until I stopped at the post office and the teller asked, 'No kids today?' That was all I needed to hear, I missed them now... bad, standing there all by myself, not playing I Spy games while we wait in line, or having them to help ring the bell at the counter. I actually felt guilty they weren't with me.
Thankfully it was my last stop and I only had 15minutes of that feeling until I had to pick the 1st one up from school. That was a test for sure, and I know now I have to keep busy, and to avoid places with familiar faces for the next week, like the Bank too, that might do me in if they offer a lollipop and no kids are there to receive one!
But of course it's always worse for Mom than it is for the kids, their smiling faces and glorious stories of new experiences and friends always make growing-up a wonderful thing! I can only savor these days and try not to look ahead to the future school and college yrs too much, it's a learning experience for me too and I'm glad we're all in it together!
