No More Tears
Well, at least this morning, anyway, which is more than I can say for the last 4 grueling mornings, so as far as I'm concerned...this was PHENOMENAL!!!
We talked all the way to school about it being Friday and how Mama and Mommy were off tomorrow. We talked about what we were going to do at school today and what we were going to eat for lunch and snack. We talked about when Mama was coming to pick them up. We talked about whether they wanted Target with the Tweety Bird or Costco tomorrow. We talked about our goodbye routine (i.e., hang up jackets, 3 kisses, 3 hugs, one lipstick kiss on each of their hands), and then they walk me to the door, we all blow kisses goodbye, say "I Love You" in sign language, and then they say, "Mama, go to work now so you don't get in trouble."
And this morning, for whatever reason, it came off without a hitch. [hear Mama's colossal sigh of relief]
