Yesterday was the first day I sent my daughter to kindergarten and she did not cry . . . and I didn't cry. It was that bad the last two days before yesterday. She has been so happy to go to school and then just before she entered the classroom on Monday and before walking into school Tuesday, she was very upset. She wanted me to hug her. These were two very emotional days for me. When I am upset, I do not eat much. I continued to exercise because Monday was the first time both of my girls were at school at the same time! I did not have to bring them to the gym with me and send them to the child care!
But, then I did not have them with ME to bring to the gym to the child-care . . .
Half of me wanted pom-poms and the other half of me wanted tissues! My 3 year old started pre-school on Monday too. So I was feeling alot of different emotions. I stayed home with my girls for two years and only started working again on a limited basis this past year. My girls have been my life and I never thought I would miss them as much as I miss them this week. Everyone always says, "Enjoy them because it goes by so fast." To all those people I say, "You are right!"
With a significant day of remembrance yesterday, I gave my daughter a big hug when she got off the bus. This week has helped me to remember that everyday is special and to treasure every moment with my children. It does go by fast.
