LONG Mommy Day…….

Like a boss

Being a mom (or parent) is exhausting. Β HAHAHA!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Exhausting is an understatement. Can I get an “AMEN?” In fact, as I sit here writing this I’m on my 3rd cup of coffee and it is only 7:45 am. I’m feeling a little like a zombie or Mombie as the term is sometimes used. Let me tell you about my day yesterday and that will explain why my rear end is dragging a little more than normal this morning…….zzzzzzzzzzz

Oops, sorry. I dozed off there for a minute. Here we go……

Yesterday (Thursday) started off like a normal day for us since my oldest started pre-k. I woke up about 5:45 and started getting myself ready. I remember thinking to myself that I heard my oldest sneezing and coughing a bit during the night, but he has allergies like me (lucky boy) so I didn’t think much of it. I got both my boys up at 6:15 and got them fed, dressed, teeth brushed, etc…..and we were out the door by 7:15. I got Nikola to school by 7:45 and then Sagan and I headed to get groceries. We went to HEB and Wal-Mart because the grocery stores can’t seem to get it together to make it easier on parents and have the same things! HA! So I had to go to both to get everything on our list. Then we headed home, I got the groceries unloaded and put up just in time to leave at 10:45 to go pick up Nikola.

11:15 am

I pick up Nikola from school, thinking “Yay! We get to go home and stay this afternoon. No errands!”

NOT!! Keep On Reading!


Nikola’s First Day of Pre-K

How did you go from this (pictures above) to pre-k so quickly? I blinked and you went from needing me 24/7 to running off to meet pre-k with a sense of adventure and determination, alone, without your mommy. I have been crying on and off all morning since I dropped you off. I won’t let you see me cry because this is good for you. I want you to love school and be excited. I don’t want my fears and sadness to hold you back from greatness and moving forward in your life and in your accomplishments. These are only tears of letting go. I do fear for you. I hope the kids are being kind to my little boy, I hope you aren’t feeling scared or overwhelmed, and I pray you aren’t needing a hug and I’m not there to give you one. I pray you have a great day and want to continue going. I don’t want this to be a bad experience for you. So I wait. I watch the clock slowly tick, closer and closer towards the time I need to leave to go pick you up. I pray that you will have only good things to tell me when I see you at 11:15.

TICK.

TOCK.

TICK.

TOCK.

I’m Not Handling this Well….

School2

Today is Saturday, August 18, 2018. In two days, my baby boy will start pre-k. He is my first so this is my first child to send off to school. I have never had to take him to daycare because I have been blessed enough to stay home with him. I’m not handling this very well at all. I knew it would be hard, I was already bracing myself for it, but this is terrible. I know it is a right of passage. I know it is a must. I know how important education is. My degree is in Elementary (EC-6) Education. My rational brain totally gets it!! Folks, my emotional mommy-brain is overriding my rational brain. I’m already trying to figure out ways to get him out of this! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Keep On Reading!
