|The cats are ready to go.|
|First day of school!|
|Already hard at work!|
Many thanks to everyone who shared their kind comments about my post yesterday, All I Really Need to Know About Genealogy I Learned in Kindergarten. I so appreciate your words of advice for me, and words of congratulations for my daughter.
I thought I would share a few photos from our morning. I hung around the classroom for a couple of hours - just make sure my daughter got the hang of things - but I finally had to force myself to leave. She only gets these 2 days of school in a classroom (the other 3 are at home), so I want them to be hers, without me fluttering around as a helicopter parent.
To be honest, this mom is having A LOT of separation anxiety. Many tears have been shed today... all of them, mine. I didn't think it would be this hard; in fact, I thought I would be dancing a jig to have a few hours to myself each week. But I suppose it will get easier each day.
It will get easier, right?
To my dear, sweet, beautiful daughter: You have so much life ahead of you, and today is the first day of a great learning adventure. Enjoy each day, live each moment to the fullest. And never forget how much your Mommy loves you. Always.
