she i survived...

So it was really today - Ruby's first day of school. Yesterday didn't count since I got to go with her. Today was harder than yesterday. I pretty much didn't know what to do with myself while she was away. You'd think we'd never done this before, the way is was so hard on me. Maybe it's because last year she was just right around the corner and because her teacher was my friend. Maybe it's because now I'm realizing that kindergarten will be here in the blink of an eye. I don't know. All I know is that today, both my home and my heart felt pretty empty without my little sunshine.

so i bought emmi that shirt from 'terget' and got it home and found out it was a dress...?!? or maybe it's a dress on emmi because it's too big. either way. cute outfit rubes. glad you survived. i think that would be hard. i just realized emmi is going to be 3 in 4 months today and about had a heart attack.

I cannot believe Ruby is old enough for Kindergarten. She's growing up way too fast! Wasn't she just born this past June? ;)

Ruby is so beautiful. She gets prettier and prettier as she grows. What a gem!

Two of my preschoolers, with whom I've been for two years now, just "graduated" to Kindergarten and it puts a little ache in my heart. While Paisley and Kyle aren't my kids, it is hard not to get attached to them when they're right on your heels everyday - and now, they're "big kids" and independent. It's definitely bittersweet. Hang in there, Nicole. Ruby will always need her mommy. And what an amazing mommy she has!

HOLA AMIGA NO SABES CUANTO TE EBTIENDO CON TUS MIEDOS
SABES QUE EN ESTOS DIAS ME SENTI MUY PENSATIVA CON RESPECTO AMIS HIJOS Y SUS FUTUROS
NO SE SI SABES QUE AQUI EN ARGENTINA LEGALIZARON EL MATRIMONIO DE PERSONAS DEL MISMO SEXO Y JUNTO CON ELLOS TIENEN LA OPORUNIDAD DE ADOPCION
Y ESO ME LLEVO A HACERME MUCHAS PREGUNTAS DE QUE SERIAN DE MIS HIJOS SI ME SUCEDIERA HALGO A MI Y MI ESPOSO Y TENDRIAN QUE IR A ADOPCION
O EL CUIDADO QUE TENGO QUE TENER CUANDO ELLOS COMIENCEN A ASISTIR A LA ESCUELA Y MUCHAS ORAS PREGUNTAS ME VINO UN TEMOS HORRIBLE
AHORA COMIENZO A COMPRENDER PORQUE NUESTROS AMADOS LIDERES HACEN MUCHO INCAPIE EN QUE COMO FAMILIA TENEMOS QUE ESTAR FUERTE EN EL EVANGELIO
TE QUIERO MUCHO AMIGA Y SE QUE SI SOMOS FIELES Y DEDICADOS A NUESTRA FAMILIA EL SEÑOR NOS LO PROTEGERA
TAMBIEN SE QUE DEBEMOS ENSEÑARLES A CUIDARSE
PERDON AMIGA POR EL COMENTARIO LO QUE PASA ES QUE SIENTO MUUCHO MIEDO ESPERO ME COMPRENDA
TE QUIERO MUCHO

Awe - My heart aches for you Nicole. I have ALWAYS had a hard time with my children growing up. It just seems to go faster and faster every year and I keep screaming for it to slow down. The universe is not listening.
Hug her extra tight and enjoy your alone time with "the crasher". :O)
