I am now the mother of a kindergartener, a first grader and a fourth grader. There was a time, just a few years ago, when I could not wait for this day to get here. Having all of my kids in school seemed so appealing back when I was in the throws of toddler mania......but oh- how I wish I could go back in time and hold and cuddle those babies. I remember taking Alli to church for the first time after she was born. Pete and I came home talking about all the random people who told us to, "enjoy this time because they grow up so fast". Back when my days consisted of nursing, changing diapers, chasing toddlers, cleaning up spills, toys, crayoned walls and the like, I never felt like it was flying by.......but here I am- a mother of three elementary children. All those random people who kept telling me that time flies after you have babies were right! It has flown by!
The first day of school was a success! All the girls did great at drop off (including myself!). I am excited about their teachers....and so are they.
