Big Day!

I am so blue! My little ones set off into the big bad world of pre-school today. Honestly, I know this is said a million times a day but really....'Where did the time go'? I realize their not off to college or anything but this is a big step. I know in my heart that things will never really be the same after they discover life outside of our little cocoon. This past year they really turned into children (as opposed to toddlers) each with their own opinions, talents and personalities. In some ways it has been more fun to hang out with them, but sometimes I just want to snuggle and kiss that little spot on the back of their neck that smells like baby. My sensible side knows that I should be proud and happy. I've done a great job so far and they are anxious to explore the world and learn new things. But the irrational part is can't stop crying as they walk away waving goodbye.

They are such beautiful children! Although they venture from the nest, they always come home to roost...enjoy them now as time does pass much too quickly for us Mamas. My boys are all grown and out except for the 16 year old but we still find time to sit and 'snuggle'. They will always be your babies!

Oh I so very much know what you mean ~
I used to cry when I would drop my kids off at school ~ I actually walked them to their classrooms when they were little and then cried as soon as I left the building ~ I was very pathetic !!
Now they are both in their 20's and it is a good place to be too !

Hi Lisa! What an absolutely adorable picture of your boys! I hope you have a video camera to document them as they grow up. I didn't have one until my son was 10 and really wish I had video of him when he was little.

If I find a shade of white that I LOVE I will let you know what it is.
