A good mother or a pathetic one?

Right, so Kayla started Grade 1 today and I have never been more proud. Or more sad.

I keep wandering into her room and straightening her picture frames, or refolding her pyjamas, or looking at the clock for the zillionth time to see if I can go and fetch her! Part of me wonders if if this is yet another oddity than can be chalked up to pregnancy hormones or whether it's because I have just one child and have yet to feel the need to send her to school so that I can have some PAQ (Peace And Quiet). But either way, I miss her terribly.

On the upside though, I am pleased to report that I have only cried once today. And I am sure that I will stop very very soon.
