Today was the 1st day of the new school year. This day creates conflict inside of my mommybrain. I am thrilled to have the house quiet once again, but I am sad my munchkins are growing older.
Every year they get on that bus a year older than the year before.
It's positively devastating.
But then the bus pulls away and it's quiet.
It's positively thrilling.
This day was no different. The only change from previous years is that we had a two hour delay due to last week's hurricane. Which meant a leisurely morning. No rush to get ready.
There were pancakes.
I gathered some fruit snacks and a juice cup, and then I put her in the car.
And I went to the one place every mommy goes when they once again can shop in peace.
