Kindergarten and Middle School?? How did this happen? No really. How? How can the days seem so long sometimes, but the years just fly by? Is this physics or something? I was too scared to take that class, so maybe I missed some important life lessons.
I look at Minnie and still see the toothless grin she had for almost 2 years, and I can still hear Quiz calling me "city" because Christie was too hard to pronounce.
I feel like I need to put their baby faces on milk cartons. Where did those kids go? What was I doing while they were growing up right in front of me? How did I miss it?
I imagine this feeling is even more difficult for parents who look at their kids and can remember very clearly holding them when they were first born.
Granted, I don't have those earliest memories, but I still understand.
Today, Quiz went to Unpack Your Backpack Night. We met his teacher, saw his classroom and took inventory of which friends are in his class. And we did it together. Me, my husband, First Wife, Minnie, Quiz, and the kids' 2 year old brother. For better or worse, this is our family and we travel in a pack when it comes to things like this.
So come Monday, the kids will get on two different busses and head to two different schools. And I will cry. And we will all begin the process of coordinating our schedules and calendars. A process that could probably confuse an actual rocket scientist.
But somehow, we'll figure it out.
