Monday was a day of firsts in our house.
First day of school.
First day of not sleeping in.
First day of first grade.
First day of sixth grade.
First day of high school.
First day of me on my lonesome.
Don’t get me wrong. I got some work done that I would never have been able to finish last week. And it was kind of great being able to watch whatever I wanted on Netflix for a change (I’ve been waiting to watch Call The Midwife for months).
But that all happened after I realized I’d been sitting on the couch for nearly an hour, staring at a wall, worrying about whether Isaac would find all of his classes, how Gracie would navigate the perils of preteendom, and if Evie knew how to use a fork in the lunch room. And all of that with a line from Mother Knows Best running on a loop in my head.
“Skip the drama, stay with Mamaaaaa…”
Goodness, I am pathetic.
But, here we are, the first week just about over. And we’ve all survived.
Just 35 weeks to go (gosh, I miss Summer already)…
