First day of Kindergarten...

Well, today was our little one’s first day of Kindergarten and like her first day of pre-k… she was with her mom.  As a teacher, I hate that her dad has to miss the first day of school, as his fiance… I hate it even more, as a step mom… it just kills me for so many reasons. 813 more words
