The twins..ok, I’M hanging on to 17 months old. 17 months & 4 weeks old today!
Just turned 3. 2008! 1st day of school.
I’m seriously not. A few months ago I thought I would be, at little bit at least. But now that the time has come, it just doesn’t feel right. I must need my brain examined as I know so many can’t wait for that day to arrive.
Part of it is that I’ll miss my kids and part of it is that my son is creeping closer to graduation and that scares me. And my daughter is starting elementary school and is completely and totally NOT looking forward to it. My heart just isn’t in it.
She has never spent a full day in school to date and I’m nervous about how both she and I will deal with it. I guess maybe I also just like a bit of chaos surrounding me. (As if twins weren’t enough?) Also, it’s depressing to think that the Summer is ending when it feels like it barely begun.
Remember as a child the Summers lasted a lifetime? You started school again and were able to re-invent yourself as a completely new person it had been so long. Why isn’t it that long anymore? After the 4th of July it seems, Summer is gone. That is what I always say, and it seems to ring true.
I know there are a ton of moms looking forward to spending more time with their baby or babies, which I am, and also the tranquility of the big kids back in the classrooms, but are any feeling a bit sad and not so excited? Am I the one one?
I was just thinking yesterday in the car how crazy my 6 year old was driving me, because she never, EVER takes a breath between words. Sometimes it makes me nuts. Miss jabber jaws never stops. Why wouldn’t I want a break then? I guess I love being tortured 😆 .
How do you feel? How are your kids feeling? My daughter already asked me to home school her. I thought to myself, ‘Wow, this isn’t even an age to begin to hate school yet.’ Then I thought, ‘How does she even know what that means? 😛 ‘ Tell me your thoughts as September draws near. I am anxious to hear them.
*Here is a video from 2008. Mikayla just turned 3 and it was a tough day sending her off to pre-school for the very 1st time. After having the door shut in my face while dropping her off, and the blinds closed on me one day.. I was wary. Between that and Mikayla not really wanting to talk about school and saying she didn’t want to go, me and my wussy husband thought something ‘odd’ was up.
We became paranoid, which seems silly now, but we took her out after 3 days. We found she wasn’t ready for separation yet when push came to shove. Another year made the difference. In Kindergarten I was like Mrs. Duncan on Good Luck Charlie, waiting for her to have a hard time and rush into my arms and never leave, but off she went. They grow up so fast!*
Ok, watching this video, I’m sure I don’t want her to go, jabber jaws or not.
