Quite honestly my house hasn't been this clean in I don't know how long... well actually I do know, the last time we were all in school! hahaha.
In the last two days not only have I gotten all of our laundry done... but it's all ironed too!! My floors are clean and my computer work all caught up.
That's all fine and dandy... but during all of this I have reverted back to blasting some loud music or tv! It is just too quiet!
Is that possible? Too quiet? Well I am here to tell you that it is possible.
Not only that... but Calley starting school has had me reminiscing of when both my boys started their Kindergarten, 20 and 16 years ago. Oh how time flies.
My life will never be the same... ever again. That's it. My baby started school.
From now on we will face the start of each school year together, as well as Thanksgiving break (because now they get the ENTIRE week of Thanksgiving off! as opposed to just Thursday and Friday as I did,) winter breaks (which I may add here that this used to be referred as "Christmas" break back in my day,) spring breaks as well as every other holiday they get off.
We will be tackling class behavior, report cards, and the inevitable parent/teacher conferences. Field trips and birthday parties... not to mention school dances, (non)romances and heartaches. Thank God I have a [long, long] while before the latter events come into play!
Most importantly I will be witnessing my daughter grow with knowledge and blossom into a beautiful person inside and out.
As empty as the majority of my days may be from now on... I am certainly looking forward to what lies ahead... my baby growing up.
