Well, tomorrow my baby goes back to school. I know that lots of you have babies that are much younger than mine, but regardless...she's still my baby.
Tomorrow she starts middle school. When we went for orientation last week, we found out her bus schedule and she informed me that she would be riding the bus this year, both to and from school. I think that is cool, and it will save us money, BUT...she informed me that it also meant the FIRST day of school as well. This will be the first time I've ever missed having the opportunity to watch her go into school, into a new school year. I loved being able to have our last few minutes together, getting a goodbye kiss, and telling how proud I am of her. I know. I know. Get a grip already! I am trying! In the morning, I'll make her breakfast, tell her how proud I am of her, kiss her goodbye, and watch her walk up to the bus stop...and I'm sure I'll shed at least a few tears! My baby is growing up, but at least she is still mine!
