The First Day of Kindergarten

The First Day of Kindergarten

July 20, 2010 -I received an email from him asking to be included in our daughter’s first day of kindergarten.  I agreed that we would meet him in the parking lot.

August 25, 2010- We met my best friend for breakfast at a local coffee shop and proceeded to school.  He didn’t show up.  He didn’t call.

I felt like I was reliving my childhood through my daughter.  My father raised me and my mother was the one who always failed at her obligations.  She would call and make arrangements to pick me up for the weekend and then months would pass before we heard from her again.

It made me sad then.  It makes me even more sad now.  All I want to do is protect them from pain and disappointments.
