I walked into blonde rascal's room this morning at, after a lazy summer, a shockingly early 6:45 and said Good morning, wake up for your first day of 5th grade!...... I swallowed the lump in my throat as I thought 5th grade, how can that be when I could so vividly see in my mind walking into his room and seeing a happy, chubby baby smiling back at me from his crib like it was yesterday?
I am always sad when school starts, not only because I have to realize my "baby" gets older and older, but also I so enjoy summer just hanging out with the little man and hate to see it come to an end. He is for sure a bright spot in my every day!
Enough pictures Mom!! He took the camera and decided Jake would make a good subject....
I guess I can hang out with Jake today, but that's just not the same....even though he is pretty cute!
Blonde rascal was excited. His teacher this year is super kind and nurturing, a real sweetheart.
I left his classroom without hugs and kisses, like I used to get in his early school years. That would be SO uncool now. He was happy to be there. That makes me happy too.
I think I will go kiss Jake. He is very free with giving kisses!
