I can’t believe it. My youngest has started Kindergarten. I always thought I would celebrate this day with a whoop, a holler, and a big old margarita, but no… I had a wee little panic attack instead. Ben was ready for this, I KNEW he’d be fine. I just wasn’t ready. The bus showed up and off he went… that’s it.
There I am. If this photo had been taken from the front, you’d probably see me wringing my hands and gnawing through the skin of my inner cheek. That’s what I do when I’m nervous.
Then it hit me, and it felt like an elephant had sat upon my chest. Panic.
Ben had a great day though! Yea Ben… you did it!
The last time I sent a kid off to school, I still had one to go in and hug real tight. This time, it’s just the sound of silence!!! Maybe it’s time for a puppy!
