School started today and my kids couldn't be happier!
I am excited for them. I shed a few tears sending my baby off to Kindergarten.
It's so hard to believe that all of my children are now in school full-time. Just a few years ago, I was writing posts about the madness and insanity that was my life with a house full of toddlers.
Now, my posts are few and far between since we are running around doing all kinds of busy-ness with the kids. Definintely a new and different phase of life.
In some ways, I miss the younger days, but I can honestly say that I'm enjoying my new independence a bit.
Is that bad?
I always hear these moms say how hard it is for them to let go. I definitely love my kids, but I also love my time alone. Sometimes, I feel guilty for actually acknowledging that--like that somehow makes me a bad mom, or at least, less of a mom.
Life changed when I had kids. It turned my life upside down. I wouldn't change it for anything, but now that I'm at a stage of being able to have some freedom, I'm going to soak it up and not feel, at all, guilty about it! I just hope I don't pack on the weight from all the Bon Bons I'll be eating......:)
