It was a bit hectic around here this morning. Things didn't go quite as planned. Really when do they ever?
Old peas and animal crackers and a used spoon in the peanut butter jar, really?!? I knew I should have packed his lunch last night:)
But we all made it. Isaiah has officially started his first day of FIRST GRADE! And the best part? Daddy has the day "off". Technically it is a study day (and he will be studying) but that allowed him to be involved! Yay. He did the drop off and I will do the pick up. I have to admit I felt kind of like a slacker mom not dropping him off myself. But it is so rare these days that Joe gets to be a part of these things. I let them have their moment. And from what I heard it went well. Isaiah was excited for school and they made it on time. A win for this family for sure.
So now it is just me and the girls. I feel a little lost without my boy. And I was sadder than I thought I would be watching him leave for his first day. I kissed him (multiple times), hugged him, smiled and waved. All with that awful lump in my throat. I wasn't expecting that this year. Sure last year for kindergarten I cried like a baby. But I blamed that on my I-just-had-a-baby-two-weeks-ago-and-I-am-a-hormonal-wreck state. This year just seems so big and final. ALL day. Five days a week!
And the girls are already lost without him. Charlotte has been a crying, whining, thumb sucking mess. And Hannah is definitely feeding off her sister's fragile emotional state and SCREAMING...a lot! Fun times all around. I know we will find our groove. We just aren't there yet. So for today we will cry and whine just a bit extra because we are missing our Isaiah Boy.
Thankfully daddy is coming home for a lunch date with his girls! That should help our outlook greatly.
