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.
