That First Day

Big Backpack for a Big Boy!

We call it Back-to-School, but for the littlest preschoolers among us it is their very first time. The first time for fresh new folders tucked into bright new backpacks.  The first time for new classrooms and new friends.  The first time for waving goodbye to Mommy as she pretends not to cry.

And I will definitely cry.  If looking at my Biggest Boy proudly showing off his new backpack makes me cry, if the very thought of him striking out from home (even if it is just preschool) makes me cry, if even sending a stinkin' check to the school makes me cry, I will be a blubbering fool on his first day of school.

Not his first day back, but his first day, ever.
