FIRST DAY OF "SCHOOL"!
I'm terribly busy today and the realization hour is almost here. My husband says "Why be so sad? It's only 3 hours a day - it's Pre-K!" I say (in my own mind) 'I have been home with this child since he was born now he is going off to some stranger to be taught valuable knowledge and I'm jealous that I will miss all of his wide-eyed wonder'. I thought by adding U2's flashy "Beautiful Day" as the song of the week I would feel better. No chance, they had no chance. Sorry Bono, but still LOVE the sunglasses! What if he likes it and I become obsolete? What if he comes home and I try to tell him something new and fascinating and he counters with "Mom, let me just stop you there. I already know all of this. I learned it in school today. What's for dinner?" I'm irrational and emotional and I might need a pill of some kind for a few different ailments by the end of the day! Just kidding. I'm going to try and be strong. I can do this...I can do this...don't cry...don't cry...too late. Okay time to go make the donuts and bring the firstborn off to college. :o)
My best, Lynn
Music: U2 Beautiful Day - is it really, Bono? Really? Really. Really?
