We went back to school today to visit Toddlerina's friends. My friends are there too. I didn't realize just how much those teachers had become a part of my family.
Toddlerina RAN into the school director's arms, shouting her name the whole way.
Of course I cried. Then they cried, then we all looked at Jay and cried. It was so much fun for so much crying.
I am deeply grateful to stay home with my family and I cannot imagine myself here without a nod of gratitude to our school. It shaped Toddlerina and it shaped me for the better.
Momma. Are you hurting as your baby gets ready for school? I know this post doesn't diminish the pain, but consider it a flash forward into your future. S/he will be so very happy and so very loved.
And when the kids are old enough
We are going to teach them to fly.
(Name that tune. Players?)
