As I was being wheeled out of the labor & delivery department with a stressed out husband, diaper bags, twin infant carriers filled with our little bundle of joys, and a breast pump...I was shit scared. I must've looked like it too. I recall the nurse telling me to "relax, you'll be fine, go with your gut and before you know it they'll be heading off into kindergarten."
Well, that day has come and I was everything that nurse said and more. Today was the first day of kindergarten for Kaeden and Quinton. All the worry, the angst, the organizing, the how the hell am I going to do this x two.....we were fine just like that nurse told me. Our nerves may have been shot but no tears were shed from any of us. Only beaming with joy.
As I watched them walk away into separate classes I had a few thoughts running through my head...
1. Go learn. Expand your craniums.
2. I'm such a proud mama.
And my last thought was to our donor family. Wherever you are, whoever you are, thank you for donating life. Thank you for making it possible for me and Kevin to share in the joy of today's milestone, together. ♥
