Do you get happy or sad when the kids go back to school?

I know down south schools are starting back up this week, we still have another month to wait.
I personally love when the kids go back to school. I refer to it as "the most wonderful time of the year" lol But I know a lot of Moms become very sad and upset to see their children head off to school.
How do you feel when they go back?

  • I always cried when school started. I loved having my children at home. Now that they are all grown up and have families of their own, I really wish I could have spent more time with them when they were younger. My children have always brought joy to me, and I was never happy to see them go. I will never forget when our youngest child left for graduate school. He had lived with us all through his college years, as did all our children, and he was going 3 1/2 hours away to graduate school. He and I both cried, and he told me he was going to give this a try, but if it didn't work out, he wouldn't stay. He wasn't a clingy child, but he loved home. He went and he stayed, but he called home 7 times that night, and that was before cell phones. That may seem babyish to you, but he was not being a baby. He was just missing home. I thank God they all felt that way. They have all settled here and we have a such a good time!
