I've been shunned

Thursday was the first day back to school for Diva. She is a big 4th Grader now.

She is at that age where she wants her mommy but then wants her mommy to leave. I asked her if she wanted me to walk her into school and she was all for it but then when we got to the doorway of her classroom she turned to me and asked me to leave - actually her words were "You can leave mom." That was a bit crushing. She didn't want me to take any pictures with her teacher or her friends. Every other year that was mandatory. She didn't want me, period.

So I have my one stinking picture to commemorate the start of the school year.

I'll go quietly and cry in the car on the drive home.
