Mixed Emotions

We went to school today
My little boy and I
I worried all through breakfast
Afraid that he might cry
I watched him walk away with pride
And I was quite alone
The tears I thought would surely be his
Are indeed my very own

Yes, my little boy is now officially a big boy ! He absolutely loved his first day, but I am ashamed to say that I walked away from the classroom with tears streaming down my cheeks. Of course, I don't want to mother him for the rest of his life, but I can't help but feel that I lost a little bit of him today. He seemed so grown up when he came out of school and whilst he wasn't very forthcoming with information about what he'd got up to, I could tell he wanted school to be his domain and not something I need to know about.
So now I just have my little Gracie at home with me who is lost without her big brother and has taken to shouting out random words including oi, bogie, delicious ...... in that particular order. Now that is something I really should be worrying about !!!
My next post will be craft related ..... I PROMISE !!

Isn't it hard to leave them, they seem so little! I think we are more upset than them though which is good, my son has really enjoyed his first few days.
