It was Kindergarten Registration Day.
The day I had been looking forward to for many years.
The beginning of the rest of my life.
All three children in school.
I practically skipped my way into the office.
I almost belted out the song "Hallelujah", but restrained myself out of fear that they would turn us away.
A folder full of papers was handed to me with a pen.
I started writing everything down.
April 20, 2008.
I remember waddling into the hospital anxious to get everything going.
Still not believing that we were going to have a baby girl.
I remember the pain...
The perfect daughter.
And now I was filling out a form for her to hop on a bus every day and leave her Momma at home.
People always tell you to enjoy the moments because the time goes by too fast.
And as I sat there with my three children, I had to stop.
Because this moment that I had waited so long for, was not one I was enjoying.
The "needing" and "wanting".
I enjoy it.
I like my kids being at home with their Momma.
I like the noise.
And in 7 months, I will be alone without my children.
Were you sad when all of your chidlren went to school?
Did you jump for joy?
What will I do with my time?
