Our last day

Monday, September 17, 2012
Tomorrow is my last full day with Ethan before he starts going to school full time.  Wednesday will be his first day going from 8:50AM-3:00PM.  It's such a long day for such a small child.  He's loving school so far, but I'm not sure how he's going to feel about going all day 5 days a week.
Today was my 2nd morning on my own without him and I couldn't believe how happy I was to see him walk out of that classroom!  I really missed him and that was with him being gone just a few hours.  I'm having trouble sleeping and it seems like every little thing bothers me a lot more than it should.  I am slowly unravelling.  I'm fighting back the tears as I write this.  I just don't want him to go!
I am doing my best to not let him know how I'm feeling, but I think he's way to smart for that because every day I pick him up, he asks. 'So how did you do without me today, Mommy? You weren't very sad were you?'  I always tell him, No, Baby, I was fine.  No need to worry about me, but I missed you!'
Tomorrow I'm taking him to the book store to get a new dinosaur book and then we're going to go out to lunch together, followed by some ice cream.  I told him we'll spend the whole day together.  I'm looking forward to it except for the fact that he wants to learn how to take the bus.  I on the other hand, could go the rest of my life without stepping on a bus and be just fine with it!  Lets hope I can talk him out of it!
