So emotions were running high this morning. My oldest left for middle school. I walked him to the corner of our street but if he could have had me hide in the bushes he would have because he's "too old to have his mom walk him to the bus stop." I think he was a bit nervous. He didn't finish his breakfast which never happens. He claims it was too early for breakfast and that he was still digesting dinner from last night. Ok, if you say so Billy.
I'll admit I was a bit teary-eyed walking back to the house. I could have easily lost it but I had to compose myself to say hello to a neighbor. Then it was time to get the next 3 ready for their bus. They were all smiles. Of course I was trying not to think about Annie, my baby girl, leaving me for the whole day. I will miss her. I'll miss all of them.
And so will Matthew.
