This Cannot Be Happening...

We have lots to get to about all that is happening under this umbrella of life, but I must address an issue that really has me crazy today. Yes, even crazier than the debt ceiling, this c-section I am still recovering from, my addiction to Starbucks, and so on.

A week from today...

7 days from now...

Next Monday...

This sweet face

starts kindergarten.

What's that you say?

Yes, K-I-N-D-E-R-G-A-R-T-E-N!!

Ahhh. I can't believe it.

Where has the time gone? Surely, I can't have a child old enough for BIG SCHOOL! I was an elementary school teacher and know that once those children enter those doors, they don't come out the same sweet, innocent boys and girls that entered. :)

I am excited for him, but also sad and a nervous wreck. I worry about all of the normal things moms worry about, but there is part of me that just truly can't believe he is going to school. I want to be 100% happy for  him, I really do. He has asked a lot of questions, is nervous about making new friends (since we moved and know no one and he had to leave his total BFF and sidekick behind, Abby who also doubled as another mother to him has thrown us both for a small loop), is curious about what all he will do all day, and truly cannot understand why they have rest time at school when he certainly doesn't rest during the day at home.

He is such a sweet, incredibly intelligent, curious, excited, and loving child.  I hope his teachers and friends accept him for him and love him an ounce as much as I do.

Happy Monday sweet friends!


  1. AWWW!! I CANNOT believe it, it hardly seems possible that sweet boy is ready for KINDERGARTEN!! How exciting and what a rollercoaster of emotions. I know he will do wonderfully and will make a ton of kind and fun friends at the new school. The girls will be so lonely at home without him during the day!

    YAY Mini #1! Wishing you a WONDERFUL year at school (and ENJOY the rest of your SUMMER!!)
