Today my baby started school. Right before the bell rang, to line up I took a look around the lot at the kids. I will tell you I wanted to scoop up my little girl and run back to the van and get in and never come back. Those older kids are mean, beat on each other, curse, spit, kick. There was a cop in the back looking on and a security guard. They had no control over those kids. I kept my child next to me until she walked away in line to her class. My heart was racing, a huge lump in my throat and tears were falling. Her last words were, I love you to Mommy, when I yelled Bye Becca, I love you. Man, was that hard letting her walk away. She will be in school from 8:30am to 3:09pm.
So far today I did some grocery shopping. I want to cook a nice dinner. I bought all the fixings for meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, salad, brocolli and a fresh baked loaf of italian bread. Jim will be happy. I haven't cooked in a couple days. In about 20 minutes I will head out and go do laundry. Yep, I am going to attempt it myself today. I'll just have to hurry and remove the clothes from the dryer so the heat don't get to me as much.
I also have to swing by the Rainbow store and get Rebecca a sweater. She needs a dark blue sweater.
Well, that's about it. I'll let you know how her first day went.
Love to all,
