Every school year is different, and this one is so much so. I am grateful that DH was home this morning to experience this day. Because of work hours, this Dad often misses the milestone mornings. This day was a gift to all of us - the little boys and I loved him walking us all to school. Sweet.
Hard to believe that *this year* is finally here. A huge personal Godsend.
I think I am burned out on babies. Don't get me wrong, I love them all. I don't regret a minute of mothering, a second of it -- but I am done with that part. Cooked.
We have always had a child at home, always. It has been 21 years since I have been home alone (without a baby, toddler, preschooler, part time kindergartner). I knew the day would come, in anticipation of it for quite some time, and I am thrilled it is here - right now. Yes!
New life...a new day...a new beginning for a girl/mom/wife like me.
I think this will be so good.
