My 3 Monsters: *sigh*

Recent Posts



Such sweet children, bravely facing the first day of third, fifth and seventh grade.  Confident.  Excited.  No one needed me this morning.  Everyone rode the bus -- carried their own supplies.  I was feeling a little sad until D turned back as he walked out the door and said, "I guess if you want you can meet me at the school.  If you want . . ."  Yeah.  There it is.  I'm still "The Mom".  They need me, underneath it all, and I'm happy to oblige.  And that quiet house -- the one I've been longing for all summer -- was maybe a just little too quiet as the day wore on.  (Nothing I won't get used to by week's end, I assure you.)  The three o'clock hustle and bustle was most welcome.  The chatter about weird bus drivers and new friends and chinchillas . . .  That's what life is all about, really.  Ahhhhh, absence truly does make the heart grow fonder.


  1. My 3 monsters are also starting 3rd, 5th, and 7th this year. We still have 2 more weeks of summer here, but I am both happy and sad to start this new chapter. They are getting so old!!! Also my 7th grader is in private school, which means we need to start looking at high schools this year so we can do applications next year. High school??? I just can't comprehend my little blonde boy is in the earliest stages of teen-dom!!!

    Enjoy your monsters!

  2. mine are starting 1st, 3rd, 5th, 8th, and 10th... as un-needed as I am to the 10th grader tomorrow I'm glad that the 1st is still eager for me to walk her to class :)
