This morning was the first time in 20 years that I didn't get up and wave good-bye to a child for the first day of school.
I used to put out my lawn chair and sit and watch all the busses go by. Drink my cup of coffee. Wave to any parents on the street who were doing the same.
I miss it. I looked forward to this day, I think, more than my children did.
What is it about the first day of school?
