Today was a very emotional day for Mom. She had to see us BOTH off to school. She opted to walk us to the door the first day, normally all the parents drive through to drop off the kids.
From Mommy's perspective:
At one point Miles said a bit nervously "Are you going to stay with me Mommy." Which he quickly forgot when the doors opened. He walked on in, without looking back, without running back for his hug and kiss. I've been preparing him for this for a long time. He's always had trouble with separation. Though I should be, and truly am happy that he was able to waltz away and not be afraid of being independent, it was a little sad too. My baby is in school now. And he's really not a baby anymore.
And yes, I cried (after I left).
