Am I a Terrible Mother?
This morning I took Munchkin to school like I normally do. She said her prayers before getting out of the car. I made the mistake of getting out of the car and going around to open the door for her. I guess I should have just opened it from the inside. She started crying and saying she wanted me to walk her in. Had we been on time and if I had been able to park in the lot that may have been possible. Today though we were late and in the second group of cars so I was parked in the circle with all the cars that were ready to pull out. I explained that I couldn't walk her in today she had to go herself and she started crying harder. The teacher that directs traffic called the principal on the walkie talkie and she came down to walk Munchkin in. As I was pulling away her hand was reached back and she was screaming. I am a horrible mother....I should have parked and walked her in. At least that is how it feels right now. She was so excited for school this morning too. She has music today and loves that, we talked about it on the way to school. Is this separation anxiety? Maybe I will call her teacher in a little while so I can make sure she is ok.
