Heartbreak day in playschool

Today, adult companions were no longer allowed to enter the classroom. There were tears and lots of screaming from the students. Two kids threw up due to non-stop crying. Some moms turned into cantankerous bitches. There was non-stop talking about how kids are kids and will need their moms/dads inside the room.

I was just listening, missing my TLO. She's a brave little girl. She didn't cry at all. During recess, parents were allowed to supervise their kids while eating. She immediately went back to the "mat" area after consuming her cookies and chocolate drink. I had to stop her for a long embrace, some kisses and I love you, I'll miss you. She gave me a quick hug and just like that, she's gone.

I guess my heart got broken today too.

I cried buckets of tears when I watched this a few months before I found out I was pregnant with TLO. No more buckets, just ginormous gallons... 

"Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning 
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile 
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness 
And I have to sit down for a while 
The feeling that I'm losing her forever 
And without really entering her world 
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter 
That funny little girl"

"Slipping through my fingers all the time 
I try to capture every minute 
The feeling in it 
Slipping through my fingers all the time 
Do I really see what's in her mind 
Each time I think I'm close to knowing 
She keeps on growing 
Slipping through my fingers all the time"

  1. nasaktan din ako nung hindi na pwede samahan sila Megan one week after ng first day, mapapawi din ang heartbreak na yan pag nakita mo na ang excitement sa mata niya tuwing ikukwento sa yo ang mga ginawa nila ng mga classmates niya :)
