My kids went back to school yesterday. It was bittersweet, while I was overjoyed to have a quiet(ish) house again I can't believe my Charlotte is in KINDERGARDEN.
I mean just look at this face! How can she be so big already? Even more troubling was the fact that she wanted to ride the bus on the very first day of school! I had imagined driving her there, walking her to her class and hugging her goodbye, and crying all the way back to the car.
She apparently had other plans! We all walked to the bus stop and I was filled with nervous energy. I kept thinking the bus was going to come and she was going to panic.
NOPE! My once very shy daughter yelled "bye Mom!" and ran onto that bus.
I think it helps having a big brother :-)
