It's my morning off! Kinda...

Zachary has his first day of Mother's Morning Out today.
It's two days a week from 9 to 1. As Daniel and I were walking back to the car after dropping him off this morning, I was trying to figure out what was so weird about leaving Z behind. This isn't the first time I've dropped him off somewhere: he's been going to MOPS since he was 5 months old; I've dropped him off with friends for a couple hours, sometimes with D and sometimes not; but what was so strange about this morning? Then I realized that I've never left him for so many hours as part of a scheduled, weekly thing. Two days a week! Until May!

On our way home I kept thinking of so many errands I could run real quick, and I had to remind myself, over and over, that I'll have plenty of opportunities to run errands with just one kid - this isn't my only chance. Today I'm focusing on cleaning and organizing (which is why I'm blogging, obviously) without a little whirlwind coming behind me and undoing everything.

I'm excited for him: hopefully he'll make a friend or two, and on future mornings he won't find it necessary to walk behind me as soon as he catches sight of the room.
I love you, Little Bug. You amaze me every time I turn around. Have a great First (of many Firsts) Day of School.
