missed first

Caleb went to the park today for the very first time, without me. 

He enjoyed his first ride in a swing without me. 

I shed some tears of happiness at the pure joy of his experience. 

I shed some tears for myself because I was not there. 

I was at work fighting back my tears as I watched the video sent to me by my wonderful sitter hoping that my students wouldn't notice.

This is just the beginning of things that I will not be there for, but it's so hard when it's the first time.
