I know what you’re going through. Dropping your precious child off on their 1st day of school. Whether you are a stay at home mom or a working mom, it is one of the hardest thing. You see the nervous and fearful look in their eyes. Your heart just aches because this is something they have to do and there is nothing at that moment that you can do to make them feel better. They cling to you screaming and crying for you not to leave them, they will miss you, please don’t leave. And you have to leave. Knowing that they will be fine, but your heart still breaks into a million pieces because all they want is you, and you leave. Then you cry the whole way home, and possibly the whole day. You feel like a bad parent, you feel you’ve abandoned your baby. You’re anxious all day, wondering how they are feeling, are they having fun, do they still love you, are they angry or hurt. But I promise, it’s going to be ok. I have to keep reminding myself of this, even though this is my second child starting school. My first child had a rough start, but we made it through. It was hard, but now he is in 2nd grade thriving. Every day got better. You would think I would be more prepared, right. But, we never are. Just remember, right now may seem like the toughest times and how are you going to get past it. Just remember, It’s going to be ok Momma. This is just another stepping stone.
