I have waited all summer for school to start back so I can get back into the routines that I need to focus on work and to write. Today is the first day of school for my kids!
My son starts high school today. I dropped him off and promptly started tearing up. OMG it really feels like just yesterday that they handed him to me and he was 6 pounds and some ounces of warmth. My constant companion for 11 years. I remember his arms stretched up reaching for me to pick him up again. He was always in my arms, snuggled in my lap or curled up next to me. Today marks that our time living together and hanging out on the couch daily is drawing to a close. 14 1/2 incredible years full of first and I am still so grateful everyday that I had the opportunity to be a mom! Without a doubt, being a mom is the greatest thing I have ever done in my life.
I am so excited to hear how their first day of school went!
