I'm Gonna Swallow My Tears

When Griffin started first grade a few weeks ago I was giving other parents high-fives in the hallway. Hell, when Griffin went to preschool as a four-year old I was giving other parents high-fives in the hallway.

But when Darwin went to His First Day of Preschool today I got dizzy.

My baby? In preschool?

No, no, not my baby; not in preschool!


Awwww, crap. ::sigh::

This whole kids-growing-up-getting-older-bullshit is ridiculous.

Hell, my daughter can start reverse-aging any day now. I'm ready.

Such a great first day of school pix! We start on Thursday and I'm kind of sad. I've enjoyed being home with my baby.

I love ages 2-6. They love you so much and they just love to be with you no matter what. My 8 & 9 year old start school tomorrow and boy I'm glad of that! They are so bored and the friends one minute and at each others throats the next. I wish they could stay little forever!

Leigh Ann told me about your blog. I'm a lost Kansas in New York and terribly homesick. Now I have another Kansas blog to visit.

Have a wonderful day!

Awww...that's gonna be me when Wyatt goes. Im holdin on to him as tight as I can for as long as I can. Because I swear he'd get on the bus and go to first grade with the big boys if he could.

Crystal said...

I am totally with you on that.

Chickenbells said...

Awww...but look how grown-up he looks! Oh...well, I get it now...

Awe, maybe that is what is happening to me. I only have one kiddo and I am beyond excited to see him off to preschool next week. Maybe if/when I have another I will be more emotional.

I second the sentiment entirely...

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
