A Little Freaked Out.
But in a good way. It is day number two of the new school year and both of my little ones (who insist on rapidly becoming not so little anymore) are both *sob* in school. I am a bag of mixed emotions! I haven't actually cried yet but I know it's coming and will happen at the most inopportune moment like when I'm in line at the grocery and realize I'm shopping alone! I am so proud of them both. Hugging each other and both excited to see who each others teachers will be. Then when I picked them up they couldn't find out enough about what happened with the other in class that first day of school. It was Magnolia's birthday and the first day of school. I was so excited for them and I didn't want to be falling apart on them. And yet here I sit sipping coffee and typing a bit excited to have a moment to think, breathe, go through their out grown toys and clothes without them morning the loss each long forgotten treasure. if you look over an see another parent sobbing while pumping gas, send them a positive though and a knowing look. We've all been there. I hope all you mommies and daddies are having lovely first days of school!
