Today is Arthur's last day. You can forgive me if this news is not unmixed with just a smidge of glee. Tomorrow is Mia's last day. I will miss Mia and her cheerful good nature, but I will NOT miss her dad, so again, not an unmixed blessing. On Monday I start a new baby, little Ki-woon, who will only be with me for the summer. He seems a sweet child, and I'm looking forward to his start day on Tuesday.
Tomorrow is Darcy's last day.
Please share with me a moment of silent mourning.
Oh, I will miss that boy! How I will miss him. No more sneaking grins of brilliant humour, belly laughs at things that pass the others by. No more dry putting-things-in-perspective comments. Who else will have his sturdy gentleness? Who else will be that oasis of calm in the midst of toddler storms? Even when Darcy cries, he does it gently. The boy's graduation is going to leave a hole in the fabric of my days.
