First Day Back to School!!

Today was the first day back to school. I thought it was going smoothly, everyone got up on time and was eager to go. I walked them in and Alice asked that I stay with her and walk her to class while the other two ate breakfast (they don’t like to eat it at home but love eating it at school) – this was a bad idea.  About two minutes after we got to the cafeteria Alice started crying.  Poor little baby. I walked her to class and the tears just kept coming. Her teacher tried to console her but the tears kept coming. I left and her tears kept coming and so did mine. I could not get out of the school fast enough.  With each step I wanted to turn around and sit with her until she was okay but I knew if I did she would never be okay, so I left and now feel guilty knowing I should not but I do. 100_2671 I got up at 3 am this morning because I was supposed to finish Natalie’s school bag last night but I fell asleep.  I think it is too large for her but she loves it. Maybe I am hoping she thinks it is too large so I can keep it.

So now I must sleep, I have to work tonight and I will not have much time to sleep if I don’t go now.
