First day of school
I am taking tonight off. I have settled into the couch and not moved for the last hour and a half. Today was more emotionally draining than I thought it would be. When I dropped child one off at school this morning I really didn't think I'd cry, but by the time I left the tears were falling.
After school we talked all about her day. She was so excited and had a
wonderful day. I love hearing things from her perspective, and she loves having my undivided attention.
Then at dinner tonight she discovered her first loose tooth. She was so excited. What did I do? I started crying. Yep, I lost it. I'm not ready for her to grow up yet. Of course my response startled her and she started to cry too. I finally managed to convince her that Mommy was just being goofy and that everything really was o.k.
I'm headed to bed soon, and I'm sure I won't have any trouble sleeping tonight.
A little nervous. Is she checking her zipper?
