First Day Back to School
Being a mom is alot of work, but I enjoy every minute of it! Don't get me wrong, some days I want to pull my hair out cry, scream, kick, and throw fits (much like my children) but I have no doubt that being a mom is my life's calling. My daughter had her first day back to school today. Officially a 3rd grader now! Oye Vey!! Seems like just yesterday she was getting on the bus for her half day Kindergarten. Time sure does fly.. and I am aging (& feeling it) to prove it! I was not ready for her to go back. I love having my kids at home with me. When they are with me they are safe, taken care of, fed well, and insert any other thing us as moms feel we do best here. It is so hard to step back and give them their independence when we have been there and want to make things as easy as possible for them. This is where I struggle the most. I have awful anxiety and when it comes to my kids you can multiply that by ten easy! Getting Madison ready to start the school year I made sure she had new clothes in the latest fashions, new supplies that were of course pink.. (is there any other color?!?) , her new hair cut, new flashing sketchers ( a necessity right?), and you name it. The thing is, we can do and/or give our children anything they want but the fact remains we can't go with them, make them someone they are not, do everything for them or even try to. We need to equip them with the tools to go out and be the best "he/she" they can be. I am trying but as a parent I fail as much as I succeed. I am hoping and praying for a year of happiness, success and fun!
