Hannah had been looking forward to this day for the longest time. We had been having nightly chats about school and she had become increasingly excited about seeing all her friends again, getting reacquainted and just plain doing anything in school.
The day before, she had helped me pack her bag, and chose her outfit for the day. She even chose what snack to bring! Today, she woke up extra early, and got ready without any fuss. We reached school in time for breakfast and she met one of her closest friends who had arrived at approximately the same time as her.
Her teachers and friends were overjoyed to see her, and I think it was mutual. I walked her to class, made sure she settled down for breakfast, gave her a hug and kiss and told her I’ll be back at 12:30p.m. to pick her up.
When I did, she proudly exclaimed, “I had so much FUN today, Mommy!”
And that just makes my day. Absolutely.
