School is in Session
So, yesterday was Lake's first day of Second Grade. How is it that my baby whom I just brought home from the hospital YESTERDAY is already in 2nd grade???? I miss that baby. Oh, sure I love my funny, smart, cute as a button 2nd grader, but I miss the baby who used to sit on a blanket in my living room and play with toys for hours. I miss opening the car door to see his little smiling face sitting in a car seat that was way too big for him. I miss propping him up on the couch and making him smile by doing crazy, silly things. I even miss the diapers, the bottles, the trips to Babies R Us.........It almost makes me want to have..........No, I wont say it - I don't really mean it. I will say this.............I am afraid that when my boys are all grown up, I will regret not having a daughter. There is some truth to the old saying "A son is a son until he takes a wife, a daughter is a daughter for the rest of her life". I see that played out in my friend's (sisters) lives.
Oh how I wish I could stop time for just a few years and keep my babies seven and four for a little while longer...............
On a scary note, I would like to show you what it looks like when a mom and her 2 kids play kickball in the rain for an hour......WARNING: two of these are cute and one is very scary!!
In the interest of being REAL (see previous post) I thought I would go ahead and scare you with the REAL me (it's okay for you to pray for my hubs because he has to look at this every morning and night - I promise the in-between a.m. and p.m. Inst as scary).
So, for those of you who think I always wear makeup and look "put together", here is proof that I don't --- I should, but I don't. Oh and how 'bout that double chin? That is as REAL as it gets, my friends.
Now go erase this scary mental image from your minds (maybe look at the picture on my sidebar to see that I am not nearly as scary with makeup) and have a great weekend!
