Last-Day Blues

My 2nd grader, William, arrived home in tears today, having realized that tomorrow will be the last day that he and big-brother Jeffrey will ever attend the same school.

After a round of brother-and-mom hugs, he retrieved his teddy bear, Jeff’s stuffed tiger (“because my bear and his tiger are brothers, too”) and retreated to his bed with a good book.

I like how our coping strategies are similar.
