  • I cried at my son's kindy graduation. He seemed so big! I just went through pics from it last week and am wondering how he could be 9 years old already. :(

  • Awe. I know how you feel. I cried my eyes out when my Son graduated Preschool. I was so worried about him going to Elementary School & on the bus. Now he is also finishing Kindergarten next week. It's weird, I am not feeling sad about it at all. I'm looking forward to having him home. Maybe because he plays so nice with his little Sister. She misses him so much when he's off to School. She is so bored alone with me :)

  • Know exactly how you feel they grow way too fast.

  • They do grow way too fast. It doesn't feel like it when you are in the middle of "NO!" and potty training. Then all of a sudden you are literally seeing eye to eye with them. My oldest just hit 6 ft! and is in Drivers Ed. I am completely longing for those last days of kinder and first grade.

  • I was doing that yesterday. Yesterday was my daughter's last day, today is my son's. Watching her run down the path to her classroom while I'm miles behind (not literally) got me thinking of her first month or so of school. She would NOT let go of my hand while walking to that same classroom. She spent the 5-10 minutes in the morning scheming some way to get me to pick her up. She was SO clingy. Now, she's been spending the last few months scheming on ways to get me to stay home so she can walk to school all by herself (with her older brother).

    So many changes in so short a time.

  • Onward and upward, Mama! The days are long, but the years are short.
