My kids all went back to school last week. It is the first and only year that I’ll have all 5 kid at the same school, and I’m so grateful.
Dropping them off was rushed and exciting and as a mother it was really fun to see how each of them headed into the classroom. Some were nervous, one SO excited, and a few as cool as a cat. After all the hustle and bustle of getting the kids to class, I returned home to Jeff rushing out the door to work and I was faced with….an eerily quiet house.
And then it hit me.
ALL of my kids were in school full day for the first time, which meant that for the first time in 11 years I hadn’t had children at home with me all day. Especially after having the kids home all summer it was, well, shocking, and surprisingly sad.
I sat down on my couch and almost cried. I NEVER thought I’d do that.
Onward and upward, I guess. It’s time for my kidlets to soar.
I just didn’t realize that letting them all fly would be so hard.
Do you have a hard time sending your kids back to school?
Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!
