Well, a few last night at bedtime. Philly told me he was worried he was gonna miss me at school. Niamh wanted in on the snuggles, so she came over...with a whiney voice...and said, "I might miss you, mom." Then she started giggling.
We ate special donuts this morning (thank you, Phil, for the 6am donut run:)...
We spent a little too much time looking for underwear. But, thank goodness, both kids went with some on:). That is always a good way to gage our mornings--Do the kids have underwear on? :)
Niamh had to have these two pieces of hair hang out of her bow. I can't say I'm a fan of these hairs in her face, but she did look super pretty. And sometimes you just need to let them have their own say in their 'style'.
We peeked in the kids rooms before we left. Niamh was happy, and seated next to one of her besties. Philly was air-fiving the teacher-- smiling and ready for the school year.
What a difference a year makes! Last September, I spent the whole day crying, broken-hearted for my little guy. This year, I'm excited for them both!
Hope all the mamas out there had a good first day (or will, depending on when you start!) of school with the kiddos!! And, for all the mommies who are bringing their baby to school for the first time ever this fall-- feeling sad, teary-eyed, and pretty much just a red, puffy-faced mess-- I promise.promise.promise. It does get easier...or, maybe just happier:). (I still get the urge to steal them away and continue on with summer:).
But, then the whole hour of looking for clean underwear would have been in vain:). And you can't throw away all that effort.
Happy School Year, friends!!
