Will graduated from Preschool today! I am sure it was a lovely ceremony and I hope he behaved and knew that he was loved by his imaginary mom who wasn't really there. Where was I? Oh, at another medical appointment. Imagine that! For some reason today it was hard for me to let him go, knowing that he would see all the other parents there and wonder where his mommy was. It was especially hard because I knew I didn't have any "replacements" today. Usually if I miss something special due to a medical appointment, I have a "replacement" go for me. But, Morgan was out of town for work, my in-laws had an appointment at the same time, and my mom was required to go with me to my appointment so the therapist could instruct her as well.
I wrote a letter to the teacher, letting her know that I would not be there and would she please help him to feel special. I included a Sees Dark Chocolate candy bar to seal the deal and watched him get on the bus. I know I am really being over-dramatic about this, but for some reason.....today, it was hard to not be able to be there for my kiddo because of cancer.
By the end, he was rolling his eyes at me!
The rest of the day was wonderful. Morgan came back from his trip, we all played in the backyard in the beautiful weather, we had Mesa Frozen Yogurt together, we jumped on the trampoline in the rain, and the kids even played "Kick the Can" with the coul-de-sac kids before going in for the night. All in all it was a beautiful day. Sometimes things pull at my heartstrings though, and it really helped me to sit here and write about it.
