back in session


Well, yesterday was the big day. Day one of another school year and on Sunday when the reality of it all set in and I thought about taking the infamous back to school picture of Jake, I remembered that I had barely even looked at the ones I took of him in his cap and gown right after his Kindergarten graduation. And if that doesn't say time flies, I'm not sure what would. Geez!

I keep telling myself that our morning could have gone so much worse than it did. What first day back to school would be complete without a little drama? More importantly, all's well that ends well. When I picked him up, we talked about his day that went so great, and all in one breath he told me, "Mom, I was the ONLY one who didn't go in time out. The ONLY ONE! Wasn't that good, Mom? I mean I guess that just means I was ready for first grade."

Yep, you really are ready, Baby.
