Well, School started this past Monday and as you all know I had a melt down a couple of weeks prior to school starting. When Monday came my oldest son ever so independent wanted to go ahead and ride the bus to school. And I was actually relieved, because I needed to take the younger two boys to their school. So it took a lot of stress off me to only have togo to oneschool. We took pictures that day in front of the house, then againin front of the school sign with the marquee on it. The boys were so excited to be at school, I was excited for them too, but deep down I was having a pity party. We walked my middle son to his class and got him all set up,then took my youngest to his kindergarten class. He found his seat, the teacher had a goody bag for him to look at on his desk and he got his breakfast ready to eat. As he was opening his milk my dh looked at me and said "Okay time to go". I walked out grabbed a tissue and stood in the hall with tears in my eyes. DH came out and hugged me and we both walked to the car. After we got home he announced he had to get to work. So that meant I was going to be ALL ALONE! He left and I sat in my rocking chair and cried for about 10 minutes. Then I decided that was enough and that I needto treat myself to a girly day. SO i went and had a manicure and pedicure. Took myself to my favorite chinese restaurant,then went shopping! I reall had a good time even though I missed all my boys terribly. I just didn't allow myself to wallow in sadness all day. WHen it came time for the bus to be dropping the boys off I was ready. I had baked a "Happy First Day Of School" cake and had id sitting on the table with cute napkins left over form someones birthday. Then the door burst open with little boys ready to tell me all about their firat day of school over a piece of chocolate cake. It was wonderful. My youngest son said the coolest thing about his day was getting to ride the bus. So in the end, I was actually stronger inside than I thought I would be sending my last child to school. And the other thing is I really like spending time with myself.
