I waited until this morning to write this because my 4 year old headed off on a bus today for all day preschool. I know I was anxious before hand. Actually the past few weeks. However, I wanted to write my feelings in the moment.
Meet D-man. This is his nickname, he even told the teacher his name was D-man. Ha-ha! He is my youngest of four. I have felt like such a horrible Mama because when the other three went to school. I was not heart broken but I am with this one. This one is hitting me hard. Every time I think about it, since he left at 8:00 a.m. this morning, I’ve had tears.
He is Mr. Personality and Mr. Silly. He is my hugger and kisser. He loves his Mama, their is no doubt!
I love him. He makes me laugh. It’s going to be really quiet…. I’m going to miss him!
Reality has set in that I will not have any children home with me all year long. It’s a strange feeling after over 14 years of being home most of the time with my kids. He’s my last baby to go to school… I’m going to miss him so much!
He looked so nervous getting on the bus. However, he was excited. I’m going to miss him today. As a matter of fact, I think it will take awhile before I’m “okay” with it. I can’t wait until he gets off that bus and tells me all about his first day.
So if I’m quiet for a few days, I’m just trying to let this life change settle in.
P.S. Thank you to all who posted that they are praying for my Aunt Jean.
