The kids ALL went back to school today. Sad sad day for me :'(( I got so used to spending all waking hours with them that I’m all of a sudden having withdrawal symptoms.
My hunny & I had to split driving duties in bringing the kids to school. In as much as I want to take ALL 3 to school myself & shower them with sloppy kisses & bear hugs before they start their day, I am only 1 person -boohoo!
Ate’s college schedule is crazy. Today, we both had to wake up at 5 so she can be in school before 7AM. My poor baby.
|Cuddling in the car with her new travel blankie :)|
|My baby all grown up </3|
|Couldn’t help tearing up as I watched her go in.
It seems like yesterday when I brought her to pre-school (where of course I stayed ’til the very end -everyday!)
|And the tears continue to fall! :'((
Pretty soon she won’t be needing -or wanting, her mommy anymore.
I was up all night (and morning) worrying if she will be able to make friends quickly -or if she will have somebody to eat lunch with.
My ate is like a diesel fueled car -it takes her long to warm up to people. And she’s shy around newbies. So I was really praying hard for good new friends -she will be spending 4 long years with them after all. Thank God my prayers were answered. God is good. Ate texted me midway that she made several new friends & that they were eating lunch together. Only then was I able to breathe normally again.
I think even when she’s 100 years old, she will always be my baby, & I will always worry about her. I know that I need to let her try out her wings -she will be 18 soon.
|The box I prepared for my sweetness <3|
|Top: Extra Black flats (uniform), Colored flats, slippers.
Below: Snacks, Extra set of clothes.
(You can buy these boxes from SM’s plastic ware dept.)
|Soft & oh-so-fluffy blanket & neck pillow.
So she can sleep during her travel time.
|Books to keep her occupied if she gets stuck in traffic,
or if she has a long wait for the next class.
(These are her choices, she is more serious a reader than I am haha!)
|Toiletries & Essentials.
Can you see the Handy Toilet? :P
(I don’t think she will EVER use this, haha!)
|Charger for her phone.|
My 2 munchkins, on the other hand, were brought to school by their dad. And Jela, of course! ;P
|One measly photo from my hunny bunch -MEN! @_@
This is my only photo memory of their 1st day back in school.
