Tomorrow is our big day. Our Peanuts Gaby, Kadyn, and Mia are all going back to school. I really dislike this time of year- a little piece, hmmm, a big piece of me hates sending them back. With Mia being gone four afternoons a week, it is hitting me that my kids ARE growing up. Kendal will be my last "baby" at home with me. I do not have baby fever or wish to have anymore children however I miss them being little. I will cry tomorrow. On top of Mia starting her first day at SHES, it is her 4th birthday. On top of it being her 4th birthday, she got a big girl hair cut last night that seemed to age her by two years. It was her choice and she looks super cute.
I have always stated that Gaby and my mom have a special bond. The past two weeks have been hard for her. Gaby has had trouble going to sleep and misses my mom, mainly at bed time. Finally one evening she broke down and told Dustin she thought it was her fault Grammy fell and had her seizures. Gabs thought if she had gotten up to get her medication it wouldn't have happened. Poor thing. My heart was sad for her. Dustin explained in great length it wasn't her fault. Love my tender hearted girl.
As you can see in the next posts we have been busy in the daycare world. I lost three kids to school and moving. I was super blessed to gain three families from one daycare that was closing. They are all SHES families and their children all know each other. This is huge. Having new kids come and have this great of a transition is just unheard of. We are still learning the rules, routine, and structure but I am so over the moon excited at how well everyone is doing. I was nervous for this past week as everyone started. But it has proven to be one of the best weeks ever. I am so pleased to have such a great group that welcomed our new friends, having new friends doing so well, and having wonderful families to work with. I am looking forward to a great school year.
Well, as I ramble I see that I have 4 baskets of laundry to fold, balloon animals that kadyn made to put up, and my room to clean because the food people are coming tomorrow and my paperwork is on the computer in my room. As fun as it is to ramble about things, I better get going and make good use of my rest time.
