With all due respect, motherly love and all that stuff...HALLELUJAH ! ! !
Today was the first day of 4th grade (Number 1) and 1st grade (Number 2). Somehow I managed to get these 2 to school this morning on time with minimal fuss, drama or disaster. The double stroller was packed down with Numbers 3 and 4 and overflowing with school supplies and backpacks.
I know there are probably a lot of moms (you know who you are), who are sad to see this day come. I can honestly say I do not fall into that camp. But I have more mixed feelings than I expected. Not sad, but not overjoyed to see them go either. I had just gotten the rhythm of summer and having them all home most of the time. And, it just seems to all be going so fast.
If anything, I feel proud. Proud that they are excited to go to school. Proud that they do well in school. Proud that the principal hasn't called me into the office about either one of them (yet!). And proud that we are halfway there! I know we will blink our eyes and The Babies will be in school too.
