1st Day of School

William started daycare today, or "school" as we like to call it. I must say, I am terribly jealous of stay-at-home moms. I knew this day was coming from the moment I found out I was pregnant...but that does not make it any easier. William has been able to stay at home for his first 11 weeks of life. First with me and later with family members while I worked part-time. Hunter and I have enjoyed a summer filled with long lunches spent visiting and loving on our little man. However, this morning, I woke up knowing that I would not see him for eight hours straight. I stood at the door and cried as Hunter and William pulled out of the driveway and headed to school. Of course William was fine; it is his Mama that is having a hard time adjusting.
Here is a picture of the sweet baby boy that made me smile today!

I know it's hard....that's one of the hardest things a Mommy ever has to do. Hang in there girl....he will be fine, and - I promise - you will be too. Love y'all.

Be strong, Gin! Just think about how exciting it will be to get home to that sweet little man every afternoon! Are you sure you didn't photoshop your dad's baby picture onto William's body...can't believe how much they favor!

Ginny, William is so sweet. I can't believe how much he's grown since I saw him at Jeff and Katherine's shower. They grow way too quick!!!!

You are so right! It is one of the hardest things a mom has to do!! John Parker didn't have to go to "school" until he was 15 months old. Now, Sawyer will be going in November-which will break my heart!! I still miss John Parker terribly during the day!!! You'll will get through it!! And DON'T ever think that you are a bad mom because you don't stay home with your child. You are terrific and he will always know who his mommy is and love her unconditionally!! No daycare can take that away!!
