It is unbelievable that Levi is going to start the 1st grade. I just mailed in the second half of his tuition so it has really struck me today. It sort of took my breath away for a moment. How did this happen?

I know it is amazing how time goes so fast. Tre in 1st and Henry in 2nd. Blows me away.
I am hoping our new school experience is much better.
I know for us 1st grade was challenging. More big kid school time. But they learn sooooo much it is absolutely amazing. Actually looking forward to the adventures in 2nd grade...
Lately I have been missing having "babies" as I see them around. Obviously that part of my life is probably over...still wonder how the time went so fast.

I know! How is this possible that my little boy will be a 1st grader?

More unbelievable is my baby will be 3 in October. She was just born how can she be 3 already?

I'm with Sandra, I really miss having an infant. I know how hard it is with bottles and waking up in the middle of the night but if I could I would do it a couple more times. Alas, that part of my life is over and I need to savor every moment I can while they are still little.

Dude, I know what you mean! These kids are so big now! And ours have grown up together without even knowing each other.

As for baby blues, none here, no way uh-uh not even a little. My co-teacher at work was 24 and preggo and just the conversations about cribs and baby names and delivery had me exhausted. My youngest is considering sitting on the potty and can use his own enough for me!

I can't believe it either! I was just looking through all the old pictured on my facebook account and tearing because they were so tiny in them.

I am enjoying getting rid of clothes and toys as we finish with them and am def not having the baby blues. When I see a baby I get sad for a moment knowing I will never have one again but it's ok....I am enjoying my "grown" boys!
