Big day today
Today my youngest daughter, Alex, started school. It seems like it was only yesterday that Sophie was starting, but already two years have passed. I didn't feel sad that I was losing my baby to school, as she was very ready for it. However, I did feel very sad that Nigel was not there to see her make this big step. Other dads were there, and I am so glad they were able to do that. It is times like this that I become more painfully aware that our family is not how it should be. We are a close-knit family unit, but I never planned to be a lone parent, a widowed parent. I work hard for my girls, am always there for them. I know Nigel would be proud if he could see them now. But it's just not the same, is it?
