Whew. What a day it has been. Today has been a “first day” for many people I love.
My baby sister started high school today. (HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE???)
My baby started preschool…(AGAIN, HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE???)
And my husband started a new job!!!!!! WHOOHOOO!!!!
They were even kind enough to let him come in a little bit late on his first day so he could come with me to take the Mini Athlete to school. Heaven knows I needed his arms around me as I blubbered my way out of the building.
I mean, I’ve been a working mom since the Mini Athlete was 9 weeks old. I know he’s used to spending the day away from me. But it’s always scary watching your child go off to a new place. You want him to feel loved, comforted, at peace.
I got back to the car after we dropped him off and said to my husband, “I hope he has a good day,” through my tears. Then I told him, “You better get used to this. I’m pretty sure I”ll be the same way when he starts kindergarten, middle school, high school and college.”
My husband responded with a smile,
“You know, it’s MY first day too.”
Hehe. Oh right.
“I hope you have a good day too, honey.”
It sounds like everyone had a good first day. My little sister sent me a text after school and said her first day was “Amazing!” That probably means there are lots of cute boys in her classes.
My husband had a great first day too. He has a lot to learn about his new position, but he’s excited to get started!
And the Mini Athlete played on the playground, did some art projects and who knows what else. Apparently naptime didn’t last too long, but neither did the tears after I left. For both of us.
And my day? Pretty unproductive considering all the time I spent thinking about these three people I love! But I also spent the day thinking about how I am blessed beyond measure. Truly, truly blessed.
Anyone else celebrating a big “first day” today?
