This morning I parked my car across the street from the school and walked Peanut to the doors. It was cool out, the weather was just beautiful, there were tons of kids either walking by themselves or with their parents... And it was our special time together. It gave me great pleasure to see her walk to the door, say good-bye to me, and head on to her classroom without needing to look back. It was a confidence I had hoped to see. I actually really enjoyed the walk back to my car too as I am finding this is a nice time of the day to strike up conversations with other parents.
