how did this happen?
My girls today.
How did this happen?
Miss Rose started second grade this morning. She told us she wasn't going to cry when we left, and she didn't. She cried for over a year every time I used to drop her off at daycare. Tears were shed the first day of Kindergarten and First Grade.
I don't EVER remember a first day of school that was rainy. But it was absolutely pouring this morning. A hot, humid rain. And its continued to rain. I feel sorry for the teachers who may have a rainy day schedule on the first day of school. Not normal for our little sunny city.
The little girls start preschool tomorrow. We go tonight to meet their teachers and get acquainted with the school.
I have mixed feelings about all of this.
I love my girls so much. I love that I am the center of their world.
But I know this is going to change. It's a part of life and of them growing up. One of my personal parenting goals is to make sure my children always feel a healthy attachment to me. I want them to need me and want me, in a way that is appropriate for their age. And I want to always be there for them.
No tears for second grade. Preschool.
I don't know if my heart can handle this.
