Usually Brenna has Lunch Bunch on Fridays between gymnastics class and preschool. Today, however, no one else came so the activity was canceled. It was heartbreaking to see her cry on Miss Kristen, the teacher; she really looks forward to Lunch Bunch every Friday.
Caelan and I had planned (OK, I had planned, Caelan has no choice but to tag along) a stop at Target on the way home so we just made a little adjustment and did our shopping then had our own Lunch Bunch in Snack Avenue (I think it's something like that...) at Target.
As we were taking Brenna back to school she announced, "Mom, you don't need to take me into school. I can do it myself; I've got it all under control."
She's 4. And she's got it "all under control".
Heaven help me.
So I called the school to make sure that would be ok. They know us well and said it would be fine.
We pulled up in front of the school, I let her out of the car, gave her a kiss and sent her on her way. As she ran to the door she turned to wave, the smile on her face spread from ear to ear. She was so proud of herself.
As I watched she pulled open the heavy doors and entered. She did, indeed, have it "all under control".
And my heart broke just a tiny bit.
