And it has to do with my girls’ starting Kindergarten. My babies. Starting School. Their first day of real school. As Kindergartner’s. In uniforms. Aren’t I dealing with this well? :-)
So, the girls’ starting school = BIG DEAL TO MOM! I’m feeling very selfish about this rite of passage. This time will never come to pass again and guess what? Just guess what? My Mother-in-Law wants to invade my bubble – she wants to be there to share the first day of school experience and I don’t want her there. These are my babies. She saw her own babies off to their first day of school now it’s my turn and really I don’t feel like sharing. Grrrr. I know I know I’m being very - not nice - but goll darn it don’t do this to me. Don’t put me in this predicament. IT’S THEIR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! It is OUR day.
So what do I do? Do I tell her no? Do I tell her she can stop by right before they leave for school (which could be a bad thing depending on how things are going and how scared they are feeling)? Do I tell her she can come over another day later in the week? What do I do? Am I being unreasonable to NOT want to share this day? Tell me. I’m confused!
Okay I’ll be anxiously awaiting your wisdom so let me know what you think. I need suggestions – seriously!
