Tomorrow is the first day of school for us and no, I’m not ready. I want to hold onto our blissfully unscheduled summer just a little while longer.
It would be easy enough to postpone the official start of 3rd grade to a day when I feel like it, but I shouldn’t. It’s time. We just got back from a vacation with Mike’s family down in Hilton Head, SC, which was absolutely perfect. We are rested and ready to go, even though that statement just contradicts everything I said a few sentences ago.
I’m so complicated.
Sometimes, my conflicted nature gets the best of me. Just last week, as moms were posting back to school pictures on blogs and Facebook of their kids on their first days, with big smiles, I was feeling left out and jealous. And thoughts of uncertainty came over me as I wondered what Max is missing out on.
But then I took a minute to review: beach. in. September.
You can definitely roll your eyes at me. I deserve it.
