asher went to school today for the first time. (okay, he went once last week, but he only lasted one hour. that doesn't count).
the blessing (and curse) of parenting is feeling opposing emotions all the time and with paralyzing power. i am tearful and sad that my baby is at school today without me. i am also relieved to have a few hours to myself and i feel 'light' in a way i haven't in 14 months.
here are photos of before school at our house this morning.
