My daughter went to school last year.... despite me missing her,which I knew would happen.... it was even harder because she cried for 2 MONTHS... they litterally had to pull her off of me each morning.... I would say with a smile I LOVE YOU SEE YOU AT 2 OCLOCK and turn and leave fast (they teach you this).... i would leave and then my whole day was ruined because I had left her crying! But this year, she is asking, when does school start.... I miss my friends, she says she isn't going to cry and I don't think she will. It was sooo odd at first without her, but eventually I got over it. I wondered why they didn't have a Mom's coffee support group but all the mom's seemed to be happy to leave their kids at school... this year I mgiht be one of them, but I definatley feel you your first year... plus, that is who you are and now for 20 hours a week you will just be YOU, not a Mom... find YOU again adn do something you like!
