This morning was the Mommy and Me Tea at Lallie's school. We had so much fun going to her classroom, listening to a song presentation and then the giving of the Mother's Day gifts. We then went for muffins and tea with all the mommies and their daughters. It was a fun morning. Being a full-time working mom, any opportunity I can get to go into the classroom with Lallie is super special.

Yesterday was the Kindergarten tour at her new school for next year. I've never cried. Not when I dropped Lallie off at her first dayschool, not when I dropped her off at Montessori, not when I dropped her off at Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten. I didn't even cry registering her for Kindergarten.
But yesterday, when she walked through the lunch line during our tour to get a snack all by herself, I broke down right there in front of everyone, the tears just flowing wildly! I guess seeing her as a self-sufficient little person, picking up her own tray, napkin and snacks just did me in! I always do those things for her...but not anymore. I guess I often take for granted all those little things that she keeps learning to do on her own, not necessarily needing me anymore. But, then I look to all the things she does still need me for and I'm trying to make a point to cherish them more rather than complaining about what I normally see as a menial task. It's not menial at all, not when it comes to Lallie. Not one bit
Happy Friday and Mother's Day y'all!
