Bitter, Sweet

Well today my little boys got a little bigger. Jase had his first day of kindergarten and Ty had his first day of preschool. The morning started off okay and we seemed to have plenty of time to get ready. But getting us all dressed, fed, and the baby fed took a lot longer than I had anticipated. The boys wanted to wear their new shoes and I hadn't planned on that. I thought I could talk them into their crocs for a couple more days, but nope they wanted their new ones that require socks and tying them. I looked over at the clock and we had to make it to the bus stop in 3 minutes. We ran out the door and half way down the street I had to pick up Ty because he was slowing us down. So here I am pushing the stroller and holding Ty and I have Jase at my side running as fast as he can. Just in time for the bus to pull up and get on it. After Jase got on the bus and was pulling away, I thought I hope he remembers where to go. This feeling of worry went through my body as I realized all of the things I had forgotten to tell him. All of the sudden my little boy was off to school and I would not be their by side to make sure he was okay. It was an awful feeling. No time to waste though, I had to get Ty to preschool. I always thought that Ty going to preschool would be a challenge and I would have to stay there with him of awhile. Buy my little Ty has grown up. He walked right in and showed his new teacher his school shoes and said "good bye, mom." I couldn't believe it. I went back to car with the baby and realized I have over two hours with just me and him. What was I going to do with myself. Sleep sounds good. Anyways, I picked up the boys at the bus stop from school and they had a blast. I can't believe how fast they have grown up! This is the beginning of a new era for us and I have to stay it is a lot harder then I thougt it would be. I wish I could keep them in a little bubble and keep them this big forever, but I can't. I love my boys and it has been so much fun watching them experience life. I can't wait to see what comes next.
