How many times did you break down and cry today?

I only lost it 3 times.I saw my dd's senior pics today. They aren't done yet, we were just able to choose our favorites. There was 1 picture where I could see my grandma (who died last Nov), my mom, my daughter and myself all in 1 pic. There were some that were ok and there were some that I absolutely love. I can't wait to see the finished product.

My babies are growing up so fast.

And my baby (who is now 12), snuggled with me for a few minutes today. I needed that.

How did the rest of you survive 1st day of school?

  • Oh I cried a few times today, but nothing to do with school.
    Our puppy's ashes are ready to be picked up. :(

  • Once...watching my son enter school as a 5th grader, knowing this is his last year in elementary school.

  • We had our 1st day last week & it went just fine. I did cry a little yesterday when I saw the news story about the man who wrote a song for his wife who had recently passed away. He sent it in for a contest & they were so touched by the words & their love story, they made his song for him. Very touching.

  • Not today, although I've come close to tears of pure exhaustion. Kids are relentless when you're sick, especially when they don't feel well either.

  • None. My kids first day was a while back and I had to work.

  • That was last week when the schools went into lockdown on the first day of school because there was a guy on the loose who had shot and killed his parents.

    My son said he was scared because he thought there was a man in the school shooting people. Sad kids even have to think that.

  • None yet. SD started high school today and I'm hoping for the best for her. DD doesn't start full day kindergarten until next year. The tears will flow then, big time!

  • I cried alone about my parents (they're both deceased).. I wish so much for our boys that they were here...
