my little "bubba" began pre-school yesterday. mommy got him up and dressed, gave him breakfast and daddy drove him to school for his first day.
he hung up his coat in his cubby (with teacher's help), played with instruments during circle time, and ate all of his snack, then rode the big boy bus home.
today, both of my children were at school by 9:00am. i'm feeling funny and happy all at the same time. my little girl knows how to brush her teeth and hair and can't wait to go to day care where she will eventually get on the bus to be taken to kindergarten. and now, my little boy...
i told my daughter last night that she was growing up too fast. "do you wish i could stay a baby?" she asked. "no," i told her. "i just wish you and your brother would slow down!"
it's one of the joys and pains of being a mom. your children grow up, they get bigger, smarter, able to do things that there weren't able to do just yesterday. you ask: where did the time go? weren't they babies in my arms just a moment ago? oh how i love them! oh what joy and blessing they are.
ad i can't wait to hear all about their day.
