There Goes My Baby

Ok y’all, today was definitely a doozy. We sent Grace off to PreK this morning and boy was it bittersweet. I felt like I was sending in my 3-year-old and in the blink of an eye, an 18-year-old is going to walk out. She, of course, sprinted the whole way into the building. It definitely eases my mind knowing that she loves school so much. With that, it’s still hard letting go. Grace and I have been so close since day one. There have only been a small number of times we have been a way from each other for more than few hours…and in those few hours I feel like I’m missing a limb. I’m not sure I even remember how to be me without her. It’s much more emotional for me than Grace, which I am happy about. I couldn’t imagine having to drop her off at school with her crying for me to stay. She’s literally like, “Ok Mom…go already!” We had a good run to say the least. We have been incredibly lucky that I have been able to stay at home with her for so long. This will be a new and undoubtedly exciting chapter in both of our lives.
