I quickly realized my concern was unnecessary.
We left for school early so we would have time to go and look at the posted list stating which classroom her would be in and who his teacher was.
He was happy that his best friend was in his class.
I started walking to the playground with him and he stopped me.
Mom, what are you doing? You really don't have to come with me. I just want to go and play with my friends.
OK, I smiled back (heart breaking silently) if you don't want me to I won't. Have a great day. Bye.
Bye Mom. See you later.
And then he was gone.
This new found independence really stinks!
