the baby is off

Alice Linda started preschool one week ago today. 2 years and 9 months old, she was nothing but excited to go to "Char-wee's schooooooool". When I brought her into the classroom and started heading for the door, she hesitated with a nervous look on her face. I thought she might cry or run toward me. But she didn't. She looked around, smiled at me and waved goodbye. 

I cried in my car.
