Aw, crewsk. I can feel your pain.
When my first started school, I walked in with him and I stood there for a while until he looked at me and said, "Momma, can you go now?" I cried all the way home :o)
When my second went, he cried in the hallway for over an hour. The teacher did everything she could do to get him to go in, nope, not a chance. Finally, after the crying quieted down, he noticed the kids coloring and eating a breakfast snack and SLOWLY, walked towards the door. Another kid smiled at him and waved and he looked at me and finally went in. It took an hour and a half to get him in there. He came home bouncing all over from excitement. It will get better. It will get to where you can't wait for them to go to school, LOL :o)

Thanks y'all! I knew I could come here & you'd all make me feel much better! I know it'll get easier & now that the dishwasher & dryer are running the silence in the house isin't quite as bad. Well, I'm off to fold some laundry!

awww, crewsk, ((((((hugs))))). i'm not a Mommy yet so i'm not quite sure what it's really like, but i know you're sad now and probably don't know what to do with yourself, but just think, when your sweetpea comes home from school she'll have all kinds of stories for her Mommy and maybe a picture that she colored that you can hang on the fridge and i'll bet if you asked for a big hug, she'd have one she was waiting all day to give you.

Oh crewsk - I kind of know how you feel - I only have 1 so I went through it the first time - but at the same time I was working about 70 hours a week so I didn't have to worry about a babysitter. Aren't they just brave little souls!!!!!! They are the sweetest at this age. We'll help you get through it but sometimes you just have to cry. {{{{{hugs}}}}}

Thanks again y'all! Well, she made it through the day(so did I) & only got in trouble once & that was for talking. Guess she takes after her mom in that, huh? She & TC both were eager to tell me about their day & I had trouble getting them to take turns talking. Thanks again for all your support & encouragement it really means a lot to me & goes to show just how special everyone on this site truly is!

Yeah & then we have to start all over on Monday! I'm afraid she's going to drive me nuts this weekend wanting to go to school. That's a good thing though!

Just wait until you have an empty nest...you don't think you will ever miss the fingerprints on the walls until they arn't there anymore........

The hardest thing was while my son John was in boot camp (Navy) the mailman delivered a larg box with all his belongings in it. At that time Kevin was 2 years old and we both sat on the floor and cried..he kept saying "Nonnie's gone"
