In the belly of the beast

Reporting to you live from the Parent Channel — we are interviewing a mom whose child just started kindergarten this morning…

PC: How did the drop-off go?

Mom: It was OK. My daughter got a little shakey at one point so I did the Kissing Hand for her, and it seemed to help.

PC: What is the Kissing Hand?

Mom: I kiss the palm of her hand, and the love travels all the way up her arm into her heart where it stays all day long.

PC: What happened after you said good-bye?

Mom: Well, (stifling a sob) they lined them up and took them into this big red buildling. They don’t allow the parents to come in (can you believe that?) and God only knows what they’re doing in there. Yes, I’m a basket case. 

PC: So what is it like now that your baby has started school?

Mom: waaaah! I miss her!

    Nathan is on his way to his first day of (pre-)school tomorrow. Feels pretty momentous.
