And, they’re off! After a crazy night last night, this morning was a breeze. The promise of a Chick-fil-a breakfast had the kids up and at ‘em at 6am. They were dressed in record time and their hair was a breeze. Lunches were already mostly packed and we were out the door within 30 minutes.
The girls and I had Chick-fil-a almost to ourselves and enjoyed a relaxing breakfast before heading to the school to be one of the first in line. Neither wanted me to walk them in. Even Lexi said, “Mommy, I do NOT want you to walk me in like a Kindergartner.” Yay!
We’ve had our fair share of rushed, angry, late mornings. I cried like a baby when Emma went to Kindergarten so it is with much relief and joy that we had a great morning with no fear or sadness.
Now, can we please talk about the difference between last year’s picture and this year’s?
I mean, seriously. Lexi especially looks about four years older than just 12 months ago. She grew some front teeth, about five inches of hair (I just cut it again last night) and a few inches of height. Emma is taller and her face is maturing too. I wish I could bottle this age up!
Parents of older children, give me your advice on how to savor this time!
