Ms. Wylet Goes To Kindergarten

Never again will all three of my babies spend lazy days with me in the little bubble that has been our universe together. Oh sure, there will be next summer when school is out but Violet's horizons will have expanded, friends will have been made and maybe our little family excursions with just each other will no longer be enough for her. There was this one, brief summer when all of my children were born and none had started school yet when we felt complete. A team, a unit, best friends who had nowhere to be and only needed each other to be happy.

Go on with your bad self, Ms. Wylet. You have more heart and soul in your pinky finger than most people manage in a lifetime. We're counting the seconds until we can come get you.

dear lord this post could make me cry. the end of our summer is near too, and i don't want it to end. my kids are going into 2nd grade and 7th grade...it doesn't seem to get easier. kindergarten was a breeze....the older they get the harder for me.
plus that family pic of yours is perfect, and heart breaking.

You pretty much said it all. Violet and Henry being 5 and 3 are (to me) in the last years of just being 2 adorable"little kids." When they hit 6 and 4 they, especially once in school, start having playdates (or whatever the hell people call it now) and birthday parties every weekend and outside interests, and lessons, and all of of a sudden they're just kids always on-the-go... it goes by so quickly, enjoy!
