Today marks one of the giant milestones in my kids', and my life.
The day went off without a hitch. They seemed to automatically know what to do. They got on the school bus without a hint of fear or apprehension. I met them at school a few minutes later, and they seemed to be much more occupied with their pencils, and "projects" and the fact that I was standing there saying goodbye. While it is difficult to "let them go", I'm proud to see that they were so well prepared for that day, that they didn't feel nervous about facing new challenges.
Still, after being with them almost every single day ever since they were born, I really do miss them. It's a good thing to have them back at home at the end of the day.
