No, nothing shocking has happened. But Katie did start school today, and I feel as if she’s done needing me.
It didn’t hit me nearly this hard last year, for whatever reason. It seems more “real” now. She’s just so grown up!
In years past, too, I stayed at home because I was homeschooling. The Mommy. Now, I’m at home because I’m disabled. That’s a lot harder to stomach, too.
