As kids are heading out the door for their first day of school, moms everywhere are hoping, praying and letting go. It is a tough thing to let go.
I am not good at goodbyes. I end up acting like the lady from the movie Blind Side, when she is dropping off her adopted son at college. Ok, kiss, hug and goodbye. This is exactly what I do and then I scurrying to the car and get in. Not making eye contact because I’ll cry big tears. So what did I do when I dropped off my daughter at school. yup, made eye contact and boo hoo-ed like a big baby.
So, instead of dropping into sappy-ville on this blog, I will instead leave you with lots of good thoughts and well wishes. To all the moms and kids out there, have a great school year.
“Mistakes are proof that you are trying” I need to remember this myself.
