They Didn't Even Miss Me?!?! Really?!?!
My sweet shorties started a Mother's Day Out program yesterday. They will just go twice a week, it's good for them to socialize and good for me to run errands, get haircuts, that kind of stuff. I was really worried because, well, Simon, has a certain way about him. He is a beautiful boy, has a smile that goes on for days, I just couldn't love that boy more. But he has SUCH a short temper. I figure the delayed speech has something to do with it, you can't understand him and he gets frustrated. But that's not all of it. I think the woman he finds to marry one day is going to have to be a very special lady. He is hard. But he is so worth it. Look at that face....
We walked into the school yesterday, I was ready to kiss and run, you know, like a band aid, fast and they'll be better. Ummm, I didn't even get the chance. They just walked off to play.... WHAT?!??! They aren't hesitant to carry on without their mommy?! No fear, no "I need you now"??? Seriously?!? I didn't eat breakfast or have coffee this morning so I would be calm, stomach ache free and this is what I get?! Ummm, good. That's exactly what I wanted, happy well-adjusted toddlers. Of course.
2 p.m. couldn't come fast enough. While I loved getting a lot done, including a horrible bang trim that will take weeks before looking somewhat normal, I missed my shorties. I sat in the parking lot for 15 minutes. (yes, of course I was early, what if there had been traffic, or an accident to hamper my drive?!) I waited to see a few moms go in, I may have been the first in the lot, no way was I going to be first in the building. Then as I walked in, I looked in the window and saw my sweet kiddos happily playing. Normal, well behaved, smiling kids. I opened the door, and my sweet Simon yells, "Mommy, Mommy!" and comes right over. Emi is way cooler than that. Smiles from across the room, but she is no rush to stop what she is doing. She has an image to protect you know. So I pick up my kids, get a glowing report from the teacher and we head to the car. All is well. We survived the first day of "school". All three of us. :)
