My baby grows up

Happened very suddenly. Today.

Now that it's the first day of summer, I dropped the kid off at the busstop. The soon to be second grader is going to an all day summer camp for the first time, fortunately with a friend.

And the killer moment: while boarding the bus, I get not even a good-bye, not even a backwards glance. Waaaaah.

I'm still in shock. This is the child I couldn't pry off my leg at kindergarten, and I was worried we would be bound together forever unable to move because sitting on mom's lap was the most favorite thing in the world. When did this happen?
