"E" 5#9oz 21 inches
I thought that I would be a mom that celebrated the day I sent my kids to school, a few hours of one less child to tote around at the grocery store sounded like heaven. I was wrong. I will admit I couldn't sleep last night due to the anxiety I was feeling for my sweet little "E". I was the mom that was fighting back the tears as I watched her line up with the rest of her class and march into her class room. Have we taught her enough? Does she know that the world is hard and mean and brutal at times? Can she stay strong and stand up for what she believes in?
(Uh-oh the tears are flowing again) Will she be kind to everyone? I hope so.
After her 2 hours and 50 minute class was over, I was eager to get my girl back home. As she jumped into the car she said "I love school mom. Can I go back tomorrow?" No, sweet "E" you can't, I want to keep you at home with me forever. That's what my heart wants to say. But, in reality she will return tomorrow and I will someday get used to sending her off, but probablly not for awhile.
