It's been almost a week since Abigail started Kindergarten and I still haven't gotten those pictures up. Maybe it's because I hate it. Yes, I hate the quiet house, the too long, could never do in a year daily to do list, and the ache for both girls. But I know with time I'll slowly get used to it. (part one is here) (part two is here)
She was nervous and worried at home.
But that worry was mixed with smiles too. There was a bit of chill in the air so she was "trying to keep warm."
Of course we were all building it up for her.. like some grand vacation to Disney World. Maybe that's why she doesn't want to go to school any more. This morning she was cuddling with me and begging me to let her stay home. Last night pulling her jammie top over her head she said, "it's just not enough of you mommy." I feel just the same way Abigail!
Her most natural smile and real happiness is when she is wrapped up in Anna's arms. Love this one!
Sweet arms around daddy's neck
Yes, we're both faking it!
This is how she looks most mornings now standing in line. Kinda numb with a "really, do I have to go again?" look on her face.
But she put a smile across her face and gave daddy a wave as she walked in line to Kindergarten without tears.
Not exactly the look you want to give to the girls in your class that you might want to play with at recess...
And this is it
Scott wrapped his arm around me and I walked away and back to the car as quickly as I could.
Later that day I got a delivery with a card that said, "thank you for staying home with our girls."
My pleasure... my pleasure!
