Misty-Eyed Monday

I am finding myself misty-eyed this Monday. It takes very little for me to get emotional ( as the hubby can attest to!) and today was generous and brought me a couple of new reasons.

First, when I picked up my son from Kindergarten, he announces that today was the final library day at school. And so it starts......'the first of the lasts.' My kindergartner will soon be a first-grader. He is excited, nervous and ready. I am sad, proud and so not ready. 

Then I get an email from my daughter's junior high school. Seems her text books will need to be turned in very soon. Yes, her first year of junior high school is almost over. One more year remains until she starts....High School???

How does this happen so fast? Wasn't I just walking her to Kindergarten? Now high school is looming menacingly in front of me? 

And so I am misty-eyed this Monday. And I find myself wondering how I can stop time for a bit and keep my babies....my babies. Just a little longer.

As for my 3 year old, does he really need to go to school at all? I mean, really, what does he need an education for? He will be living with me. Forever.
