The First Day
I gave you a little wink and smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You've been with him for
five six years now
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave him at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I'll love him as I would my own
And help him learn and grow.
For as a parent, I too know
How quickly the years do pass
As I remember the day it was my turn
To take my child to class.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love him and take him in
When you leave him at my door.
The teacher handed me this poem as we dropped him off at her door. I had choked back tears already and then almost did the ugly cry reading it in the van. I didn't have time to cry, we were off to Annika's 2 week check up! I made cookies as a special first day of school snack.
|The little boy sitting across from Sage we "met" at meet the teacher. I asked his name and he said "I don't talk very much. I do tai kwon do. I defend myself." And that was that.|
|Because my sister asked nicely. And she's really cute. No, I don't know who she looks like.|
