Today, The Girl started Second Grade.
It seems like I was just dropping her off, diaper bag and all, at day care.
She loves school and it's like a second home to her, so there were no tears, and I barely got a hug goodbye.
My sweet independent girl didn't need her mama today. And I was proud of that.
But I was just as happy that she needed a little extra snuggle last night, to calm the nerves she wouldn't admit to.
It's going to be a good year.
