My baby's gone

Today I experienced a first. In the 8 1/2 years that I've been a mom this has never happened before. I knew the day was coming, eventually, but today? I really just wasn't ready for it.

This morning after sending my eight year old off to school I had to get my baby ready for school! Okay, it's only preschool, but still! He's going to be gone five days a week from 9:00 am - noon. On Tuesdays, he stays until 2:00! It's so strange having the house all to myself. I'm sure I'll quickly adjust and maybe even learn to enjoy it.

To make matters worse, Tater Tot was a little clingy when it was time for me to leave. Bubby all but shoved me out the door his first day of preschool, but not Tater. He kept asking me to stay "just a little longer." How could I refuse those pleading brown eyes? After finding his "cubbie," taking tons of pictures, doing a few puzzles and playing with play-do, he was finally ready to let me leave. As I walked down the long hall to the exit door, I kept looking back. I kept expecting him to come running after me. Thankfully, however, he didn't. I cound't help it, after all he is my baby.

I'm leaving in about 20 minutes to go pick him up. I can't wait to see what he has to tell me about his new world.
