So my kiddos started back to school today. They were both excited yesterday, but more nervous today. I walked them both to class to meet the teachers and they had to deal with me taking pictures of them at their new desks 🙂 Both had friends from last year in their classes…hopefully that makes the day a little easier for them both.
Do you still cry? I did! I was really surprised too! Steven is in 3rd grade, and this year he had a “real” desk! For some reason, that made me really tear up! No more table…it was a DESK. That means he is getting big – real big! And before you know it he will be driving. Seriously, where does the time go?
Being a mom is the most magical thing in the world, but I guess NOTHING can prepare you for these moments. The moments that just pull at those heart strings and just make the tears flow. For reason you can’t understand…
So, to all the moms out there – Thank you for being an awesome mom! And to all the kids out there…Can you stop growing for just a few minutes 😉
Happy First Day of school everyone!

I always cry…my daughter went to 2nd grade and I have a 6 month old. I know it will be worse with him, but she is getting so big I just want to freeze time!
I totally agree – can we freeze it just for a few?? 🙂
I cheered! I was excited to have them gone, finally. It’s HARD work taking care of an almost 6 year old son with Sensory Integration Disorder and other issues. It’s also hard taking care of my adventurous 4 year old. My 4 year old daughter got into PreK full time from 7:25am until 1pm. And Matthew goes 7:10am until 2:15pm. Although he’s taking the bus home, which I might end that next week. He gets on the bus at 2:05, and they sit there for 5 to 10 minutes, on a HOT bus with no AC. Then he doesn’t even make it home until 2:45pm to 3pm everyday. We only live 5 minutes from the school. But our house is like 4th to the last house that they stop at. I don’t get why it takes almost an hour to get him home when we only live 5 minutes from the school??? So I might just bite the bullet and start picking him up.
Don’t get me wrong – I love the break – it is just hard seeing them grow up 🙂 We have no a/c on the buses either – that’s HARD! My friend’s son was on the bus for 2 HOURS today! They said the parking lot was full and they couldn’t get out! Could you imagine! UGH 🙁
I hope your kiddos love their new classrooms! Mine seem to be Ok so far – we will see what tomorrow brings!
