What to say. He started school. It's only for 9 hours a week, but still. He's my baby. I get to be a little sad, right?
It took me a while to figure out why this time it felt so different. I have sent 2 children to preschool and beyond with no problems. After contemplating on it, I realized it is the fact that Luke is still basically non-verbal. He can't come home and tell me what he did. He can't tell me if something upset him or if he cried for 30 minutes because he had a tummy ache. He also can't tell me all the good stuff, how he loved speech therapy or gym class. So, it's different. Not bad, just different.
I want him to be independent. I want him to learn everything he can so he can contribute to his community. I know it's good, but I'm going to miss having my little buddy around all day every day.
He's happy, so I'm happy. :)
