Why am I touching on this subject? Because for once today, I’ve experienced what separation anxiety is. Today, for the very first time, I left Ethan at school and went home. For the past two weeks, what I did was to leave Ethan in the classroom and went to another classroom. Though we are apart, at least I’m still around the area.
Today, I hugged him and he went into the classroom. In the car before he went up to his class, he told me that he is hungry. I just fed him before we went for class! I told him his snacks are in his bag and he knows how to get them in case he gets too hungry before the break.
Once in the class, he hugged me and followed the facilitator inside to wash his hands. They have a rule of washing every kids hands before mingling with other kids. I left him and went back down to the car. I cried all the way home.
I just couldn’t stop crying, don’t know why. This is the first time in my life that Ethan is away from me! Since the day he was born, he has never been away from me until today. My whole body went numb and I just couldn’t function. I had to sit down and thank goodness for Claire, who managed to cheer me up a little…
A couple of hours later, Ethan came back home with Darling and I am just too happy to see him again! We hugged and kissed and went to 1U after lunch :)
I am back to my normal self and maybe Claire was right. I am sometimes… just too emotional. Not good, Merryn… Not good at all!
