Anti-Climactic
Monday, August 07, 2006

I was all prepared to have a sobby post this morning, complete with a photo shot of a bus driving away in a cloud of dust...Preferably with my young son hanging out a window waving tearfully with a face of abject woe.

Um, not so much.

We get to the office about fifteen minutes early. Drag in his stuff, sign a few things and sit down. Where upon a girl with curly brown locks turns around from where she had been sitting, sees Kendell, giggles and turns away.

Kendell looks from her to me and with a straight face says, "you can go now Mom."

I of course assume he is trying to be brave and tell him that no, it's all right, I can stay.

"Don't you need to get to work Mom? You'll be late, you don't want to get into trouble."

"Are you sure?" I ask him, "I can stay, no problem."

"No really Mom, I'm fine...you better get to work."

So I gave him a kiss and hug goodbye and wandered out of the office with longing backward glances towards my little one...who was blissfully ignorant of my looks since he was busy chatting up the girl who had just made googly eyes at him.

Sniffle...

They always say separation is harder on the mom's. I am dreading the first day of Kindergarten for this very reason. I got all teared up at orientation. . . I am a goner.

Awwww! Por Mom!

Doesn't that suck?

My 10 year old girl is already starting with the "Mom you can go now" routine. But, since I'm mean and evil, I just ignore her, then proceed to embarass the crap out of her.

She loves it. }:->

I think the first day of school is always harder on the mom than on the kids.... :(

I sympathize.

BTW, found you by way of Black Belt Mama!

Aw yes...I remember the first time my son blew me off.
And I agree, embarrassing him as a teenager will be fun. Just wait - 15 yr old boys are easy targets.

Looks like he has found time to mingle, how 'bout you? Get you someone that you can get googly eyed with.

I'm glad to see that you are hanging in there. Have fun!

My first day of 6th grade, my parents were practically hanging out of the car with their video camera. I ran.
