Tell me how you felt on the first day of your kids' school? Did you, too, have these mixed feelings? It's a roller coaster here. I can't believe my baby has gotten that big that she is officially a school student.
Tomorrow is the big day and she gets to go to her school. I have been a teacher for eight years and I have always wondered what was on the parents' minds. Why were some crying while others were cheering? Now, I think I know. I feel happy and I don't know why, still I feel sad that she won't be with me as much as we used to before. I feel proud that she is now this big girl as if I have something to do with it and feel guilty, again for no specific reason. I remember this quote from one of Sarah's favorite books, "And from my arms you flee" and it literally describes how I see her right now. I am full of expectations and hopes and also don't want to get my hopes too high. I feel like this is the bravest thing we will ever have to do and at the same time, I feel so scared. Emotions!!! Lots of them!
Concerning our big girl, she was so excited for this day. She has been telling the whole Earth about it every single day for over a week. And today, I tried as much as I can to make it so special for her. She liked it so much but the day has come to its end and the dreaded sentence rose in the air, "Mommy, I don't want to go to school tomorrow!" I didn't know what to say so I just said, "Sarah, we have talked about this many times and you will like it tomorrow." I know I should have said more but I couldn't. I mean after all, I need someone to tell me that it will be alright!
Tomorrow, there will be another post about the activities we did today and her actual first day of school. Wish us luck everyone!
Thank you for visiting. Please, come again tomorrow.
