T -5 days until….
school day #1 😦
Not. Excited. At. All.
I am not ready for my kiddos to be gone all day.
The early rising…..I do that anyway because my kids are early risers every day.
Homework…I can deal with that. I love teaching them, helping them, and watching them learn.
Being home without them all day…..yeah the break is needed/wanted sometimes, but 5 days a week for 36 weeks straight is not appealing to me.
I love having the kiddos home. I love waking up with them in the mornings, tending their needs throughout the day, spending time with them…..it all means the world to me.
I see parents posting happy-the-kids-are-going-back-to-school statuses all over FB. The back to school parodies are flooding the Internet.
And here’s me…..
Pouting because they have to go back to school.
No more morning laughter…..soon to be replaced with morning grumbles.
No longer will the house be filled with the boisterousness and silly antics of growing boys.
No more midday snuggles with the school-aged munchkins.
I will miss their conversation, their laughter, their time….
I will miss talking to them.
The days will be shorter as winter is coming on and time with them will begin to feel stretched. There never seems to be enough time.
Already missing them and school’s not even here yet.
Love my kiddos to the moon and back.
