Ahhh, Routine, sigh..sniff, sniff...
This year it is so very bittersweet. For C this will be the last year it doesn't count. Meaning 8th grade. After this year what happens will follow her forever. OK, too deep sorry. I just want her to have a great year.
K- its a big year for him. 1st grade. All day, lunch.at.school. At one point in C's elementary school career there was a Pb&j stuck to the ceiling of the Cafeteria. I always wondered how it got there. Now being the mother of a son. I no longer wonder, I think I will just sit by my phone through lunch hour waiting for the call. Lunch ladies and I will become best friends, I better stock up on school staff Christmas gifts right now. This is just my mommy fear. In reality, having not been my first rodeo as a mom, (not sure why I just said that) I know our children sit still better for others then they do for us. I guess for me with K I just don't feel like I've had enough time, its been 2yrs yes, but S is closing in on 2 and I'm not sending her to school for 6hrs day, that wouldn't be right. So it just doesn't seem fair that after just 2 yrs his world will no longer revolve around me his Mother, and it should, right? So when you hear crying, no probably more accurately wailing this Tuesday morning at 8:25 est, that will be me. Watching our little man pull away on a bus, needing me just a little bit less.
And then there is S- being that our family is blended in such a unique and blessed way S is the common denominator that really brought everyone together. She loves C in a way that I would imagine all little sisters love their big sister. But K is her buddy, her playmate, and on Tuesday after all that we have been through to get to our crazy amazing family, It'll be just me and S at home throughout the day, back to just one at home. It seems strange. Don't get me wrong, I know we are blessed, even when its a stressed out kinda day. But I know I'm gonna blink and the time will be gone, and right now I'm just kinda wishing I could bottle it, freeze it and make it stand still so they all stay just where they are, for just a little bit longer.
Happy Almost First day of School..... Pictures I'm sure will follow in a few days....
