Today...was the day

Today was the day that Lily "Officially" started heart hurts! I cried..... She did pretty on the hand, I had to leave the bus stop as soon as she boarded.... I was crying.
 I am pretty sure I saw the bus driver give some instruction to the other Kindergarten parent but I couldn't go back..

She was Adorable of course in one of her new school outfits! This morning I asked her what she was most excited about for her new school...she said..."wearing all my new clothes!".

That's my girl!

Every day will be a little different now...NONE of my kids are home with me during the day now. For the past 15 years I have had a small person by my side for all or most part of my day. There have of course been some "Ugly" days along the way where you can't believe that this is what you have signed up for...but I have NEVER been one of those Mom's who was ready for all my kids to be in school so I could do my "own thing". I actually heard a mom say that the other day and I thought to myself...Wow..that is not at ALL how I am feeling!

Not judging someone Else's feelings, those are just not the feelings I have about my kids all being gone.

Life just keeps going...faster and faster each day.

My oldest is in the 10th grade...that means only 2 more years before she will leave me and go to College!!! AGGHHH...

My boys are in Middle school together...voices are changing, their getting bigger..taking on more grownup features.
I can't take it...thank goodness they still tell me they love me and give me hugs and kisses!!!

And, baby is in school...ALL DAY LONG!!!

Guess, I better find something to do with myself in The Glitter Lounge!


  1. I was just going to say that now you can spend your time in the Glitter Lounge!!!!!!

    She's soooooooooo precious!


  2. I've always loved having my daughter around me. I never look forward to the start of school after summer... so I can understand your feelings quite well.

  3. She is such a little dolly. My one is a senior this year. These passages are natural of course but such a heartbreak too. I am sure you will soon you will be creating and enjoying yourself. But be where you are by all means! XO
