Our first week of school went off without a hitch. The best teachers, happy and smiling girls eager to learn and off to school each day. But just like last year things are slowly sinking in for Abigail. They had today off and she clung to me all day. Believe me I loooved it but knew that it just wasn't her.
And then yesterday at dinner I asked her about lunchtime. Ya know, who did you sit with? Did you like your ham bites? And then she told me all matter of fact, "oh, I was crying at lunch. And I didn't want anyone to see so I hid my head in my lunch box. But Mrs. Mulready (last years super star kindergarten teacher) came over and said to me, "What's wrong? I know when something's wrong with my Abigail." And then when Abigail told her she missed mommy her teacher comforted her and told her, "oh, it's because she's such a great mom that you miss her." (or something like that)
So it's sinking in again. Abigail is the one that needs to be physically with me. She crawls in my lap right in the middle of playing with Anna today just because she needs touch. So, we'll reassure her and love on her when she is home. And look forward to those weekends!
And on our day off we made these, yummy! With homemade blueberry syrup. Oh I love days off!
I may have given up sugar, desserts and "home baked goods" (as Abigail calls them) but never ever pancakes (or good wine)
