So we had the first day of school about a week ago. But it wasn’t too big a deal because I was going with her everyday. Then today I decided to try leaving her at school BY HERSELF! Vaava and I got there a little early so we could meet M her teacher and settle her in to school and so that she and I could have a quiet moment before I let her go into the big bad world. I expected at least a little crying or some hugging, but she was so brave. She waved me goodbye and turned around and walked away holding M’s hand while I stood there watching. Then I turned walked out of the gate of the school, got into my car and cried.
