Who’s excited for school to start? This boy is, very very excited. I love that school is still fun and exciting, and the idea of meeting new friends, being in a new classroom and learning (okay having fun) all day long isn’t scary even for a moment. Two more weeks and this boy will be in full day Senior Kindergarten (in Ontario we have Junior and Senior Kinder) – the thought excites him like crazy, but makes me sad and my heart ache a little just thinking about it. I am not ready to be without him for a full day, it will of course be wonderful to spend so much one on one time with my youngest – but boy will I miss my boy. But moving on, holding onto my sap and sads till it’s so full I might burst (the first day back, probably).
King is so excited for school, and some of his reasons almost take away my Mom sadness:
I get to skip nap when I’m at school. I get to meet new friends and probably say hi to old ones. I’m going to learn french “excuse moi” like that. I’m going to be gone all day at school just like daddy when he works. Soon I’ll be five and then a real big kid almost a teenager, right mommy? I’ll be in a grade older so I’ll be stronger and faster and smarter.
We have two more weeks (give or take) left of summer and I am trying my best to soak them up, trying to ignore the rest of the distracting world and just eat every last tiny cute second up.
