I’ll Miss You At Lunch

I’ll Miss You At Lunch

I have served my son his lunch almost every day for the last 5 1/2 years. Yes, we have struggled and yes it hasn’t always been great, but my job has always been to make sure he eats everything that I want him to. Now, with Full Day Kindergarten in the near future I am very well aware that my days of having lunch every day with my son are over. It may seem like such a small thing, and I of course have always taken it for granted, but when someone mentioned it the other day I became sad. Let’s be honest, everything about him starting Kindergarten makes me sad. We can add this one to the list!

Isn’t it silly that I can get so emotional over something as silly as lunch? As I sit here writing this I cried! I started to think back over each stage of his meals and how I nursed, then spoon fed and went from high chair to booster seat to chair! Now, I will look at the clock at lunch and wonder what is he eating? Who is he sitting with? What are they talking about? Is he happy? How did we get here so fast?

 I keep reminding myself that it’s only a few extra hours in the day different than last year. Those extra hours are lunch, and Tessa’s nap. Not so bad right? Then he is home again! I looked back through pictures to find the ones I attached here. Look at this little man!!?? He’s come so far…gotten so big, and I have gotten to be with him all day through it all. Now….not so much. Now things change. I don’t do well with change….but it’s going to happen whether I like it or not! So don’t mind me while I wallow for a bit….or a lot. Change is a comin…and this mommy ain’t ready.

I have always liked to get involved in things. No matter what stage of life I am in, I find myself taking on a role that puts me out there to plan, organize, and be involved. It’s fun for me. I loved being class mom, and on parent council in preschool, and this past year

Our Preschool Graduate

He did it….I did it….we did it….our son officially graduated from preschool. I recently posted about my son graduating preschool, and it officially had come to pass. He stood on stage wearing an adorable hat, we watched his slide show of the 3 years he attended school, he sang the songs that he practiced every

Officially Closer To 40 Than 30

Last week was my 36th birthday. It wasn’t a milestone birthday, and nothing fantastic happened, but when I sat back and thought about it I was kind of floored to hear the age 36. I’m not one to care about age. I have been fine hitting every age thus far, but when I thought about

The End Of Preschool For My Firstborn

Wow….just wow. I can’t believe we have reached the last week of preschool for my first born. He has been going to Centerport Methodist Preschool for the last 3 years, and I can’t believe that at the end of this week he graduates. My little man will be standing on that stage, smiling, and singing
