I feel a little lost!

I know most moms are positively DYING for their kiddos to get back to school after summer break, but I'm one of the odd balls that really loves having the kids around. Well, let me re-phrase that so that I am not stretching the truth. I was ready for sweet Tess to go back and so was she. I mean, after all, it DID get old listening to how bored Tess was all day long. Or hungry. Yeah. Wont miss that much. And I also have to be honest that I wouldn't mind if Aaron was going to pre-school this year cause he's a little high stress right now, but then again...this too shall pass. (Or it had better!)

But my big girls....my sweet big girls....boy do I miss them already. I guess I don't miss Sarah as much since she was miss social butterfly and gone half of the summer playing anyway, but my Maddi girl was my buddy. I guess it's kind of nice having a daughter with no social life, since I don't have one either. Makes it nice to have a buddy to hang out with.

I'm so proud of her and how well she did at going to school this morning. I'm not entirely sure what I was expecting, but we had no tears and even a smile on her face when she got out of the van. Maybe the smile was trying to surpress vomiting or something like that....who knows....all I know is that this year was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo much better than last year.

Well, I guess I must run. I'm being instructed to get off the computer by my 3 year old. Maybe that's saying something like I spend too much time here. Hee hee!

Have a great day everyone!

I'm so glad you all made it through day one of school! It won't be long before winter break and then you'll want them back in school! ;)

Wow, I can't believe kids are back in school. Crazy! And I have the same thoughts as you regarding my 3 year old...I decided not to go with pre school this year, but there are days I'm wondering if I should have! And he seems to always tell me when I've spent too much time on the computer too! :) Fun age, right?!
