I'm not ready

Today is his first day of school...High School and I am not there. I have taken him to EVERY first day of school since we started and it's absolutely killing me that I can not be there today. But as it was so very graciously pointed out to me by my (n)ever understanding spouse...No one takes their kids to the first day of high school! Well I say your wrong! I was taken to my fist day by both my parents! and it wasn't embarrassing in the least! it made it easier for me.
So I sit here at work making myself sick because I'm missing this. Tearing up at the thought that our tradition has been broken...this is major people, I usually don't feel.

Made me tear up, just reading and feeling your sorrow. It's so hard to see our kids growing up. Just bite that lip that's hanging out and put on a big smile. Then, you've got about 9 months to prepare for graduation. :)

Keri,
Thank you for the encouraging words...I'm feeling better as the day goes by but still heartbroken over what I've missed by being here instead of there.

Ms. Diva,
Were you there? Did you get to see yours off to school?

Oh man. I'm so not looking forward to that stage. Just today, Pi asked me to take off work on her first day of school.

Unfortunately kids these days don't want mom and dad to escort them to their first day of high school.........they fear other kids making fun of them or worse.

My daughter is 23 and trust me the umbilical cord is stretch from my house to her's which is 40 miles away.....trust me mom's are always with their kids even during those difficult teen times.

Trust me Mommy U will always be his First Love!

I remember my son's first serious girlfriend after meeting her the first time, I walked outside got into my car and bawled my eyes out...!

Moms and their baby boys...!!!!
