Wasn’t he just a baby?
Hadn’t I just held him in my arms, & rocked him to sleep, and watched his little belly go up & down as he slept so peacefully in his crib at night.
Where has the last 5 & half years gone!? You hear it all the time as new parents from all those older, wiser, & experienced parents in your life that time flies. Cherish every minute. They grow so fast.
& man, it is true. Every last predictable word of it.
Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of our lives. We take Tucker to kindergarten round-up & get him all registered for the first day of school. I know he’s done school already. Mom’s day out, pre-k3, and pre-k4, but this is the real deal. No more half-day nonsense, no more naps, & no more afternoons with Nana & his sisters.
I know he is so ready for it, and as a teacher, I’m so ready to watch him flourish in kindergarten. But, I can honestly say, I will be cherishing ever last minute of this summer with my baby boy before he goes off to big kid school this fall!
