This is the year Madi started school. She as super excited to go and a tad but nervous. Mommy was excited for her and beyond that, not a happy camper. Rodney worked from home that day for moral support. I needed it! After she said bye and went to class, I bawled like a baby. He took me to lunch, I cried some more. I so anticipated the bus coming home that day. It took probably about a week until Madi had a little melt down about not being home anymore (I wasn't about to tell her I've been melting down all week). It took me about 2 weeks before I felt "stable" again. After 11 years of being home with a kiddo, this was a tough adjustment.
Now I go help in her class every Wednesday and it's the highlight of my week. We both still have rough times of being apart but we are doing better.
