I took my kids to their first day of public school this morning and I bawled my eyes out! I didn't think I would have such a hard time, but there I was standing in the gym holding for my son the ever popular item to bring to school, big kleenex boxes, and I didn't even think about using them! Just so you know, Lucas and Sidney were just fine and even excited. The moment it really hit and the tears came hard is when Lucas waved his little hand and said "Bye, Mommy" and walked over to where his teacher was. No crying his eyes out, no fit throwing, just the image of him growing up right before my eyes. And my beautiful Sidney, a big second-grader who couldn't wait to see her friend Ally and sit by her. I was just blown away at their maturity. Why do I deserve such wonderful children? I thank God every day for them and I hope to be a good enough mom so that when they reach adulthood they know who their God is and that he loves them even more than I do (which I can't even imagine possible). Wow! That was some deep, serious stuff there. Maybe I need to add a little humor to tomorrows blog just to even it out! I want to thank all the moms out there for crying with me!
