Today was Brookie's turn.
First day of school for my girl.
Like my boys,
she, too, insists on growing.
After we took the little boys to school yesterday,
she asked what we would be doing.
Ryan and I told her we were planning to do a little painting.
This is the worst last day of summer ever!
After we picked Jobie up and took them out to eat,
we ran a little errand.
We took Brookie to get her first phone.
Later on facebook she wrote:
Best last day of summer ever!
Finally got my first phone!
Funny how her tune changed.
She's so excited.
Even though her phone has no data plan.
But she does have unlimited texting.
Only because it comes with our plan.
That and the fact that I couldn't live without it.
I thought to myself.
I'm going to be ok today.
Must you always?)
I gave Jobie a hug at his classroom door.
And watched from the hall for a bit.
He kept looking back at me.
So finally I waved.
He waved back.
I was still doing great.
He put his head down on his desk.
Was not expecting that.
The teachers were busy with other students.
So, against my better judgement, I went to him.
He immediately hugged me and said:
Mommy, I want to stay with you!
I told him (thru my own tears):
Baby, you can't.
You have to stay at school.
And mommy has to leave.
At this point his teacher came over.
I sat him back in his seat.
Gave him one last hug and kiss.
Patted his teacher on the shoulder.
Walked out of the classroom.
And cried the whole way home.
And maybe for an hour or so after.
But tomorrow will be better.
We have our plan down.
Wish I would have had a plan for today.
