Dropping your child off at school... in tears...

Oh Geez.. the guilt, the heartbreak, the sinking feeling... yet there's nothing really WRONG...

My daughter has a bug bit.. a teeny tiny one... really itches though... she was fine, until we pull up to school and get out and I spray some neosporin on it... thinking it would help it.. well, apparently it made it itch more.. and the tears came.. Noooooooo..

I felt so badly. I hate upsetting my kids.. of course I didn't intend to.. I thought it would help, as I'm comforting her.. the bell rings and she needs to go through the gate... In tears...

Oh man.. watching her walk through that gate wiping her eyes.. terrible... just TERRIBLE...

I do know them well enough to know that I'm certain minutes later she as giggling with a friend.. but still...
