Feelings that only mothers understand
Today I write this post with a mixture of sensations, a little strange. Carmen has gone to a linguistic immersion camp with the school, to a town in Guadalajara, where she will spend three days and, with five years she has, she has never spent a night away from home without an adult of the family next door, with what I do not know how the experiment will go - and with experiment, I mean the mother, because I know she is having a great time.
I must confess that, at the beginning, when they e-mailed the exit information, I did not pay attention because I assumed that Carmen would not go. But weeks later, she talked to classmates who did go and the teacher explained the games they were going to do, the animals that were there and the natural environment in which they were going to be, so that same day, the girl He asked me to write him down. So I did it.
The weekend we were doing the suitcase: sorting everything in bags, for days, putting the hygiene products in your toiletry bag, the flashlight, marking everything with your name ... so that she knew where she was carrying everything.
And the great day has arrived. Carmen waited happily, with her trolley in her hand because she was going to the excursion. I thought it would be easy for me to say goodbye to her, but when it was time to say goodbye and she said: "Mom give me three kisses because I'm going to be three days without seeing you", I held back with difficulty and got to work with one face , that was a poem. One of these things happened to me that nothing else that women understand when they reach that wonderful moment in their lives that is motherhood.
Now that I'm following the activities they do in the camp through a blog on the school website and I see the photos of my daughter with the rest of the classmates and how well she is doing, I think to myself: "What I'm silly for being sad *. " But they are inevitable feelings that unintentionally crop up.
