First day

I wake early this morning
There’s a lot to be done
Peaking into your bedroom
My heart flutters
As your beats calmly, while you are fast asleep
I rush downstairs for coffee
To begin this big day
Going over the list of tasks
Lunch box is packed
Snack & water bottle labeled
Family picture ready
Your clothes are laid out
The adorable bright colored plaid shirt
Waists on the hanger proudly
The shirt you will be wearing to make your first impression
Charge the camera
Shoot that’s right, I rush to plug it in
Now it’s time for my run and this day to really begin
A quick shower, just after I scoop up baby sister, who is now crying
It’s ok darling, mama is here
Fixing my makeup
With my daughter in my lap
Then I hear your sweet little voice yell to me
Mama, I woke up, where are you?
I’m right here in Mommy & Daddy’s room, angel
Come on in, I’m just getting ready
Where am I going mama?
Today is your first day of school, your going to school today.
Oh boy, I can’t wait!
Baby, I’m going to school today baby!
He tells his baby sister
With a gleam in his eye
While I stare, both so happy and yet sad
All at the same time
Of coarse I want him to go and do well
It’s just he’s still my baby, too
First pre-school, next college
My heart flutters again
The heart strings being pulled
Setting my own selfish feelings aside
Your going to great
I can’t wait to hear all about your big day
Soon there are flashes from my camera
Going off by the dozen
With him not nearly standing still
You can’t really imagine how challenging it can be
The perfect picture of a three year old boy, the one he’s least squirmy
I opt to let him keep the airplane in hand
My prized picture
I will cherish for years to come
We walk him to class
Saying all of our hellos
One more picture with him
Then it’s time to turn and go
I love you my sweet angle
Blowing a kiss, one more time for good luck
I walk back to the car
That’s it
He is off.
