My baby, my first born, my little girl...she started school today. I thought I was handling it well. I looked at it as a positive thing. She was excited, I was excited. It was a win-win. Mom took her shopping over the weekend and she got some very stylin' new clothes for school. She picked out her outfit two days before school started, then this morning, like a girl, she changed her mind and picked another one which was equally as cute. We got to the school, the teacher opened the car door and she hopped out and went in and never looked back. I watched her walk into that school with her backpack on and she looked so small. Suddenly I yearned for my baby girl. She's been with me for the last four years. Nonstop. Then it hit me that those days were gone forever. This is the first step towards her leaving me! I thought I was handling it well. I wasn't. I cried all the way home. This is still a good thing and she loved it. My little girl is growing up.
