First Day of School
I climbed in bed with Sadie this morning to wake her up. I kept squeezing her little body & brushing her hair out of her face. She stretched a few times & then woke up. We talked for a little bit & I asked her if she was excited to go to first grade this morning. She told me that she was a little scared because she would be away from me for so long. I assured her that she would be so busy that she wouldn't even notice. Mama on the other hand....
It happened so fast. We waved goodbye & she was gone. Then it was just Claire & I left to walk back to the car alone. I was really doing fine & then at that moment when she walked off, I was hit with emotion. It's always been like that & I'm sure it always will be. I asked Claire if she missed Sadie & she said "I want to give her a hug & a kiss." Me too, little one. Me too. I wish I could hold on to their little bodies forever. But there is also something really great about watching them grow up & become their own little people. :)
