Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down.

Today was the first day of school. Some parents eagerly await this day. Some parents fix the lunches with a smile and gently shove the kids out the door so they can be transported to that educational facility that will help mold and shape their young ones into independent, strong, and well-informed little people.

But not me.

While I value education tremendously, I miss the boys all day. I was sad packing lunches this morning. (They were really healthy lunches, too. Let’s see how long that lasts!)

I had a tear in my eye when the buses pulled away from the corner.

But they’re home now – with smiles and stories to share. And aside from the huge pile of forms for me to fill out and sign, I’m happy.

And I got to thinking about Gnightgirl and her son Brian. If it was this hard for me to send my kids a couple miles away for 6 hours….

  1. I know what you mean! This past week has seen my eldest turn 21 and my youngest start high school. It is exciting, and yet…..


  2. I was reading along thinking about how I’d race Brian up to the school door just in the nick of time, yelling, each morning, “tuck & roll, dude!” pretending to push him out of the car.

    And there I am in the last sentence. And here I am all teared up again. xo

  3. Andre – wow. It was bound to happen, but so soon?

    GNG – Sorry to make you tear up again. I think you are such a great mom and so strong and that helps give me perspective.
