Well, there are alot of "firsts" spiraling around our house these days! This is my "first" official blog posting. Jacob (our oldest) is experiencing fourth grade for the "first" time. Jack (our youngest) will experience real school (Kindergarten) for the "first" time tomorrow. Brian (the husband) is spending the "first" day in his new office (same company, just new office). Everyone is so very excited about their "firsts". Everyone, that is, except me. Tomorrow will be my "first" day with both children officially in school! Such sweet sorrow. It only seems like hours that we brought that 9lb bundle of pure joy home from the hospital. Hard to believe it has really been 5 years. He is so ready to get to school. Our conversation over breakfast this morning went something like this: "Jack, are you so excited to go to your new school tomorrow?" "Yep, I hope I don't fart." (What mom wouldn't be proud to hear these words spill from her 5 year olds lips??) Trying hard to ignore the statement, I proceeded with "You are just going to love your teacher." His response? "My teacher's hot!" Now, this is the same child that just 3 days ago was adamant that he was not going to have that teacher. She has short hair and he wanted a teacher with long hair. That's Jack for you! We never know what will pop out of his mouth. Jack is our wild card. Every family needs at least one.
I will end this first post by saying, as sad as I feel that my Jack will be growing up tomorrow, I am so excited to begin this journey with him. He is excited to be in the same school as his precious big brother. What fun it will be for the two of them. Something tells me, there will be lots of giggles and whispers in the coming nights long after the bedtime stories are read and the lights are out!
