So here I am. Treading lightly into the world of blogging…please bear with me, I’m new at this. Today is a big day. Not only did I get the nerve to sign up for this blog, but it was my little girl’s first day of JK. (Is it wrong that I’m still crying?) She was adorable and found one of her friends from her daycare. I know she’s going to be great, but I feel so nervous for her. School can be a scary place. Here is my wish for her:
“I hope you have a fantastic day that lays a great foundation for the rest of your school career. I wish you are brave enough to say hi to somebody you don’t know. They could end up being your friend for life. I wish you are confident enough to answer a question the teacher asks you. I wish you are kind enough to help somebody who may need you. I wish you are friendly to everyone who you will share a class with for the next 9 months. I hope you are strong enough to know you can do anything you set your mind too. And no matter what, I hope you are aware that mommy and daddy love you so much, everyday.”
I feel a little strange writing to the universe. But I guess that’s how it starts, so I’ll tell you a little about me. I have been married to a wonderful man for 7 years this October. We have two beautiful little girls, 4 and 18 months. I work full time and I love my job. I love to be creative, write, scrapbook and read. I am loud and wear my heart on my sleeve.
Being a mom is the greatest gift in the world. I am blessed. My girls are great. They are polar opposites, which definitely keeps me on my toes. It is also the greatest challenge. Some days it’s hard not to feel like you’re losing your mind. But then you get a hug or a kiss and it’s all worth it.
So now I have to figure out what to do with the rest of my day…It’s not often I get a day to myself. Hmmm….the possibilities are endless, so let’s hope I figure something out, before it’s time to pick up my new student from school.
…until next time!
