I'm starting off a whole new era of life as of next Monday morning. My first baby girl is going to be leaving my side to go to Kindergarten. We have spent 5 1/2 years together, every day, every minute, every week. I have to finish buying school supplies, join PTA, go to orientation, put my baby on a school bus, do a new kind of shopping for lunchbox type food, buy new tennis shoes (she grew several inches this Summer), new jeans, and the list goes on and on. I have do all this while warding off the tears. I think it sucks that all of her play time hours are going to be spent away from me. I get her for dinner, and bedtime and thats about it. Whatever happened to half day kindy? I also need to find a babysitter so I can go on all the field trips that I can. Life speeds by so fast when you have kids. I feel like childhood and teenage years took so long, and as soon as that first baby girl was born life started whooshing by me at lighting speeds. On top of Isabella going to school all day, Layla is starting preschool. Which is 4 days a week for half a day. Where did my little baby girls go? And the cherry on top of it all? Isabella learned to ride a two wheeler at her daddy's side last night......let the tears fall. I mean, if she weren't growing up and needing new pants, and going to school that would mean that there is something wrong with her. She is doing exactly what a healthy little girl should be doing, so I guess I need to grow up all over again too.
