I know how I told you guys all about how hard it was for me to send Charlie off to his first day of preschool. It was a tough day, and so I did what most people do when they’re feeling anxious–I called someone to talk.
I called my brother and this is how the conversation went:
ME: Chris, I just dropped my baby off at preschool.
CHRIS: Yeah, so?
ME: Well, it’s just so sad. . . I don’t know what to do with myself.
CHRIS: Well, you could join a gym! Or get a job!
ME: Uhhhh. . how is that going to help me right now?
CHRIS: What’s the big deal? It’s just school.
ME: You know how when you send your dog to daycare? And they have a little camera so you can check on her? Well I don’t have that and we’re talking about my child.
CHRIS: Shut up.
