She is growing up

Ok, I am not one of those Moms who gets all emotional when milestones are hit. My husband normally gives me a hard time because I am heartless about these things. My feelings are that the more emotional I get the more traumatic the event will be for my kids.

So today when I took ONE to Kindergarten Roundup I wasn't quite prepared for the slew of emotions that hit. Worse still, my husband went with as well so I had to keep up my brave face or risk loosing my reputation or worse yet get picked on for the next several years because I dared shed a tear.

I didn't cry, I wanted to, but I didn't. What am I going to be like when I take her to school for real? She can be shy and self conscious enough without me adding to it.

PS--I restrained myself from taking pictures (this is just practice, I will take pictures this fall) though others did making me feel guilty for not doing so.


  1. Hi there! Found you through mom blogs. I know how you feel; when my son was that age it was tough to watch him go through each milestone and not act all "mommish." lol.

  2. Hi, I'm your newest follower from the MBC Follow Me Club. It's amazing how these emotions hit you when you're not looking. I got the same thing when my kids went to camp. I thought I'd be cartwheeling out of the parking lot toward my week of freedom, but alas, my sturdy composure crumbled! Take the kleenex box to the 1st day of kindergarten :)
