Letting Go

Ok so you know yesterday I told y'all about Sweet Pea starting school--today will about me "letting go".  I think I told y'all how she wanted to walk in by herself on the second day and I just wasn't ready but I did on the third day.  So here it is day 3 and she's asking me if she can walk in and I grudgingly say yes because I know how much she wants to be a "big girl".  And before you wonder yes I watched her walk inside before I drove off.  Well the afternoon has rolled around and I went off to go and pick her up and I left early enough to be the third person in line.  The lady comes up to me with a walkie-talkie and asks me her name and then they call over the radio.  So I'm sitting there waiting watching kids come out but I still don't see mine, and as you can imagine I'm starting to freak out just a little bit.  I'm thinking surely they would have called me if she didn't make to school that morning-right?  Well as I'm worrying about all this a lady asks me if they have called her and I said yes but she's isn't here yet so they call her again over the radio.  And to put all my ease at bay here comes my little girl with a huge grin on her face.

So now about letting go--I know it's normal to worry because crazy things happen everyday but I'm also trying to keep my worrying under control and telling myself that she will be ok even though I'm not there watching over her.  However saying this I still think I will worry when either one of kids are spending the night at my mom's or sister's.  It's not that I don't trust either one of them because I really do it's just I feel better when they are with me and David.  Please tell me I'm not alone in my thinking.

Welcome back!!!! Congrats on your quilting! How fun to take up something new and discover a passion for it!

And I can only imagine how hard it was to send Sweet Pea on her first day!
