On the First Day of School...

...Mommy sobbed and sobbed...

Yes, it's true, I am emotional. I cry at Kleenex commercials, which makes me reach for a tissue...hey, I think I just figured out their marketing strategy! clever clever

Anyhoo, back to the matter at hand...

There she goes.
Off to meet the big yellow bus.

The side pony-tail she did herself.
She's very fashionable this one--she knows what's up!

I can't believe 5 years have come and gone so quickly.
I was not ready to let her go.
I always hold her hand when we cross the street.
She comes with me to the supermarket.
We go to the park and then the diner together.
And now...she's leaving me!!! What's up with that?

She walked up those gigantic steps into the bus ALL.BY.HERSELF!
She walked down the aisle of the bus ALL.BY.HERSELF!
She buckled her seatbelt ALL.BY.HERSELF!

I was surprised I got a photo that was in focus because of the water in my eyes.

There she goes.
Bye my little darling.
I'll be in the fetal position on the sofa until you get back.

This guy, on the other hand, is an old pro.
See ya, Ma. Please don't even think about crying.

I'm still not even sure it's him when he's speaking.
His voice keeps getting deeper and deeper...

Where have my babies gone?
Come back my little ones.

And let's not forget dear ole Hoss. He was wondering where his kids were going.
He even tried to get on the bus.
Now, I wish I had a photo of that--it was pretty funny!!

Who is going to rub my belly all day long??
Who is going to give me treats at random times throughout the day??

These are the important questions that need to be answered.
