Big K for My Big Kid

Hello everybody! How are you all doing? 

So we’ve have been a bit busy in my house. We’ve been experiencing some changes. 

My husband has been really busy with work. I’ve been subbing and picking up extra classes in addition to my own, so I’ve been really busy at work. Little Brother has been busy acting like a 2 year old. And Big Brother, well he’s been busy too. 

Friends, Big Brother has started KINDERGARTEN! Yikes! He’s in the big leagues now. He now goes to school all day. From 8:40am-3:10pm. All.Day. Monday through Friday! It’s crazy! 

This is not only an adjustment for him, but for me as well. My first born baby boy is not with me for majority of the day. In his five and a half years of existence, this is the first time we’ve been apart for that long of a duration. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been having a bit of a tough time with it. I miss him. I miss eating lunch with him everyday. I miss reading him books before naptime. My house just seems so quiet now that it’s just Little Brother and me. 

Dang it you guys, why do they grow up so fast?! 

So I’m sure it’s going to come as no surprise when I tell you that I cried on the first day of Kindergarten…….three times. Yep. I think it’s funny how I didn’t shed one tear when I started kindergarten as a kid, but I was all emotional and sappy all day on my kid’s first day of kindergarten! 

I mean look at him, he’s so big. Already!

First Day of Kindergarten

We’re are all getting used to this new schedule of ours. Things have been shifted- lunch times, nap time, bedtimes, and even playtimes. Instead of going to the park in the late morning before lunch, we now have to go in the late afternoon before dinner.

But we’re all getting into our little groove of things. Once things settle down, and we feel like we’re settling into a sense of “normal” (whatever that means for the moment), then I’ll get back into a regular scheduled program of blogging. I’ve been a little sporadic with it lately, but I’m sure you understand, getting Big Brother ready and adjusted to a new routine, new teacher and new friends has been my priority.

I’ve got some fun stuff coming up, though. I have to finish my highlights and review of my Toledo trip. I have some book reports from my summer reading. I have some food porn new recipes to share with you. Of course being a fitness instructor, I have some workouts to tell you about. And last but not least, we have our summer bucket list to talk about. Plus all kinds of other randomness that I’m sure will pop up! 

Merry Back to School Season!

  1. Oh man, I can’t believe it’s here! I’m sure I’ll cry . . . two weeks from today for Big and then I start back to work 3 weeks after that. Does his little brother miss him all day? I think it’s going to be hard for the little sisters at home . . .

  2. Yeah. College. I don’t really want to work at all this week because I’d rather be talking to my kid and asking her what happened today. Yesterday we spent an hour online together while I helped her find stuff on her school website. We also text and call.
    And yeah, there was crying when I drove back to SoCal without her.
