Today was ds3's last day of preschool before summer break. Each year they have a program and family picnic.

All my boys have attended this school, so I've probably done this about 7-8 times.

Dh has never been. He's always been gone.

It is what it is, but, for some reason, today, it made me sad.

Has there ever been anything that, despite wearing your big girl panties, still made you blue for them to miss?

Man they grow up fast.


Quoting SusanD:

Last night ds1 went to his first dance (end of the year before middle school dance type thing) and he went with a girl. It would have been nice for dh to have been here.

He missed the first day of school for our oldest. I had a really hard time with her going and I was sad because he would have helped me hold it together. He actually came home like 2 weeks later, but it sucked.

<3 You are such an amazing mom.

I think it wasn't just dh not being there; seeing the grandparents, aunts, and uncles made me sad for my guys...

Oh, well... I'll treat them to ice cream later.

anything and everything school related.  My oldest is in band and they have concerts twice a year.  Dh usually misses them...

Dh missed dd1's birthday, our 10th anniversary, and is missing all of dd2's firsts. It sucks but it is what it is.

My husband missed our daughter's first birthday.  He has missed other things, but that is one that stands out in my mind.

I'm glad everyone is sharing. I think it helps to acknowledge these feelings every now and then.
