BACK TO SCHOOL


Today is the kiddies first day BACK TO SCHOOL! This morning started off a little after 5am( why it takes my Diva teenage daughter an hour and a half to get ready for school is ridiculous)!! Shortly after she departed, it was time to wake up my second grade son. He took an hour himself to get dressed and ready for school. He was so excited about meeting his new teacher and making new friends!

I am so proud of my children and the people they are becoming. They are respectful, smart, friendly and both looked fashionably fabulous for their first day at school!! I held them tight, hugged them and kissed them before they left, I then proceeded to take pictures (lots of them). This annoyed them. I know, because they told me so, but whatever; I 'm da mamma!!

I was oh so emotionally sappy this morning, it took all I had not to cry. Sending my babies out into the world after months of having them under my wing and close to me was gut wrenching. I am not sure what hurts more the fact that they are growing up or that we can not do anything about it.

Shortly after the kiddies left, my hubby also left for work and I was home alone. I am left to wonder what ever will I do, with the day all to myself??? Since last week was a bit chaotic, I have plenty to keep me busy. I have real exciting stuff planned; I even made a list...laundry, dishes, dusting, vacuuming and more laundry.

I can't complain and won't complain about my domestic duties. After becoming a DomesticEngineer a year ago, I have been granted the opportunity to enjoy so much of my children's life. It is a total change of pace from the glamorous sales job I had, but this is what life is all about..FAMILY and I thank God for my healthy FABULOUS family!!!

Again, thanks for stopping by my blog. I am glad you did, so I could find yours.
I too, am a domestic Engineer, and you are right, the list of to dos seems to pile so high sometimes, but really, it is worth it, just so we can be home with the kiddos. Good luck with the loneliness, I am sure that is hard, but will get easier.

It is always tough (and so quiet that first day!)

Did you cry AFTER they left?

(I mean before you looked at your list that is!)

What a wonderful post! You can always have another future glamorous sales job in the future but your kiddos will only be little once.

Lovely post today! This is the first year that I don't have anyone going to school. It was really weird for me to see the school buses going by and knowing that those days were behind me. Enjoy your kids, they grow up too fast! Hope you were able to enjoy your day today as well!

I have one more week and then I will send my oldest to kindergarten, talk about an emotional mess. He is so excited, I am glad for that. I am so nervous and scared, I wish he would be too, just a little.
