I know there are lots of parents going through exactly what I am today. Unfortunately that knowledge doesn’t make it any easier. Today I sent my baby off to kindergarten for the first time. I walked him to the bus stop, waved him away, and waited until I got back home to cry. It all just happens so insanely quickly. What happened to my smiley infant? Where did my crawling maniac go? Where’s that kid who can’t read every word off of anything we leave lying around? Sigh. I guess it had to happen, and I’m excited that he’s enjoying his new school. I’m just a little heartbroken that my baby is so big. Let me tell you, I have no idea how I’ll make it through his graduation one day.
But don’t worry, he made it home just fine (I swear I wasn’t ready to call the school when the bus was five minutes late… OK, maybe I had my cell phone out, but I didn’t actually do it, that has to count for something).
And when I asked him if he had a good time he said, “No Mom, I didn’t have a good time, I had an AMAZING time!”
