Off to School!

So, it's been coming as I knew it would but I can't believe the day has finally arrived! My baby is off to Kindergarten! It seems like just yesterday, I was changing diapers and singing lullabies {okay, I still sing him lullabies and for the most part, he doesn't complain...but I'm sure the day is soon ahead where he'll ask me to stop but until then, I'm singin'} Now, I'm not what you'd call a "crier". I don't cry over sappy movies or commercial or greeting cards but when it comes to my little buddy, I'm a ball of mush! I kept it together until I laid down to bed the night before and then the waterworks started...reminiscing, in my mind, the past 5 years and how I no longer have him attached to my side or at my beck & call whenever I want a hug or a kiss. Nope, now he's officially a big boy off to Kindergarten! Now, he spends most of his hours with classmates and teachers and I have a mere 5 or 6 hours with him a day tops. Ugh, the sinking of my heart! So, after a restless night {for me, not him} I managed to get the super excited boy onto the bus with a smile intact until the doors closed and it pulled away...then, I was a mess again. I'm hoping tomorrow I can contain myself! At least until I get into the house again! :)
