Today is the 1st day of school in 2010. After a much enjoyed winter break, its back to school time. Today as I dropped my son to school I felt so emotional, seeing him say good bye to me. He went along with his backpack and all bundled up (as its too cold here), as if it was not a big deal at all. Yeah, its big a deal for us , parents who become so emotional and so protective for our kids. They want to fly, explore the world, they have so much to learn and to grow.
In this winter break we did have a lot of fun. He shares my passion for food. So we had a blast, cooking and baking and just enjoying ourselves. We made our first ever Gingerbread house together, right from scratch. That is a priceless memory. I'll miss my baking/cooking buddy. I'm sure he'll have some time for these fun filled moments amidst his home work and his other after school activities. If not I'll look forward to the Spring break.
