My wee girl started school last week. It was a long, tough week for all of us. The girls were thrown for a loop when Papa atypically had to travel for work at the start of the week, and then with little one starting school too...yow. Still, it went relatively well. When I picked her up after two hours on the first day, her teacher assured me that she hadn't cried after I left. That makes one of us!
She only attended two days last week and then got a break until today. This morning, I managed a quick parting and literally ran out of sight, feeling relieved she hadn't cried and more than a little guilty and sad about my lack of proper good-bye. Then, I proceeded to complete all six items on my to-do list for the day BY 9:30AM! With littles or even one little in tow, that six item list would have been laugh-able. In the 45 minutes I used today, I might have previously gotten ONE item done. I did all six! Wow. I hardly recognize this new world of potential productivity.
