Today is the first day of school for all 3 of my kids. This "First Day" is different though...it is the first day of school that will last all day for my youngest child. Up until now he has only been in school for 1/2 days.
So I am experiencing my "First Day" too. I am a bit lost not knowing what to do with my free time. Oh yes! I can certainly find things to do to keep busy!! Being a work-at-home-mom for the past 4 years I have tons of things that I should get to today...but will I?? I don't know. I kind of feel like taking a break from it all. I have been dealing with the balancing act for a long time and it's not easy when you have kids at home and you are trying to get work done.
So for now the house is quiet...except for the music. I have the satellite set to the '70's songbook' channel. I love it! It brings back so many happy memories from my childhood. I just hope that 30 years from now my kids will get these same warm, fuzzy feelings when they hear songs from this era. I hope I've done my job well. I've certainly tried!
For now I will leave with a quote I stumbled upon this morning...it's quite appropriate for me today...
"Separation anxiety happens to babies at nine months; to mothers their whole lives."
Yes!! I believe this quote perfectly describes my situation today!
