first day of school

Today is the kids first day of school.  Both are entering second grade. They told me they are both excited and nervous and I've been reassuring them that it’s ok to feel that way. I on the other hand is having the same feelings I felt back when it was their first day of kindergarten. Anxious, excited for them and sad all the same. Last night my little guy said “I will miss seeing your face mommy” it seriously melt my heart. And Sofia said she misses me so much when it rains and she’s stuck at school.  So I told them today I will go out and look for a locket for each one and put a photo of me so that they can "see" me whenever they feel lonely at school.  Sigh, kids… you can’t live with them, you can’t live without them.


  1. It's harder for them than we realize, I think. Maybe because we don't always feel that appreciation much of the time when we are actually with them. They are kids, so they take us for granted- until they have to go it alone without mom. You're sweet to get them the lockets.

    1. thanks so much for stopping by Jennie. I also think that they are especially attached to me because I work at home and they see a lot of me. My girl makes a fuss whenever I go to auction which usually takes me a whole day.
