So what made me think about all of this? Colin went to a science camp today. It was the first time he's ever went to a class where I dropped him off. Once I was back in the van with the girls, I sat there for about 5 minutes feeling a little sick about leaving him and wondering if I should just go back in. I had considered staying there when I first signed him up, but then I realized that as much as we love the library, 3 hours there is a long time for the girls. Finally, I made myself leave to do the errands I had planned and only checked my phone for the time and to make sure he didn't call
I don't think Molly liked it any more than I did. She kept asking me what time it was. After a while, she finally said that she just wanted to go back and get Colin. The funny thing is this morning she kept talking about Colin being gone like she was looking forward to it.
So we all made it through this milestone. He did great and had fun. Now we get to do it all over again tomorrow. It will be easier the second time, right?
