Last week Minnie had her first day at pre-school. We have only had 2 days apart in our 3 years together - the 2 horrible days that Alice was born and died. I missed her terribly during those 2 days.
And last Wednesday, I missed her too. I cried when I left her and she was fine. In fact she was OK for most of the day (a few moments of tears before lunch). Then at 1.30pm so told them she had enough for today and that she would like to go home. Of course I broke some records to get there and get her as fast as I could. I needed to have a long hug and breath her in.
So today is the second day. I didn't cry until I got to the car. I hope she is having fun. Its so quiet in the house. I am going to start some sewing for a big order. But I keep thinking about my little one, all growed up and off without me.
I know she will tell them when she's had enough. And I know I can tell them when I have had enough of being on my own...
