How many of you sent your kids off to school today? I sent a 2nd grader and a Kindergartner to Leesville Elementary School, and I was so excited for them (and for me, LOL!). I thought I was beyond this, since Peyton has been in daycare since he was 10 months, but I did have a tear or two in my eyes when I had to leave my little 5-year old in that great big school. I was on pins and needles all day wondering how everything went. Were they happy? Were they scared or nervous? Am I going to get a call from the Principal saying that my child is too young to go to school? (He’s just so little). Peyton was in true
form, as we waited in the Kindergarten registration line, making faces and licking my hand just to push my buttons. But he was quiet, and when he got his nametag, was the first kid that said “Thank you” to the lady. At least he got that right! LOL!
In all seriousness, moms, they grow up fast! So, if you still have a baby or are expecting a baby, enjoy every day, every step, every stage. They are all equally awesome. I remember hearing this saying. You don’t own your kids. They are on loan to you for 18 years. Enjoy the short time you have. I am one of those people that is always looking forward, and I have to remind myself to live in the moment. I hope you remember to live in the moment, and I will try to follow my own advice as well.
