All alone. .. . . .

The kids all started school.  Well, Rae starts in about one hour from the time I have started to write this. Already I feel alone. T-rex is working mids this month, so I can see him a little in the morning when Rae is still home, and then Tuesdays and Thursdays if T-rex is working, I really will have the house to myself!

Sure this is not that big of a deal, I mean I am sure people live all over the world where they are not being bugged by someone 24/7.  You know a world where people can do the dishes all at once, without being asked to help with a dress, the bathroom, or break up a fight.  I am sure there is a world where people can take a bath in peace, where they can read a book, watch a show, vacuum, or even stare at a wall in peace. 

I don’t live in that world. I have not lived in that world for a very long time. The first thing on my list is to stare at the wall! But I bet T-rex will call me, he always calls me. I love him for that, even if it does drive me crazy.

The older two have been in school for about a week, they love it.  They are making friends, learning stuff, and hyper when they get home.  Rae can really use some time to make friends, and she is so happy to start school.  I am the one who is having a hard time.  I am happy for her and I know she will do a great job. But something about my baby going off to school is just hard.  I guess it is hard for a lot of mothers.  I am just happy this is only pre-school.  I am going to flip when they all go off to college!

I hear ya. This is my last year having my first born home (well both kids home together) Pre-school drop off is so hard for many reasons.
You will find the blessings in it is suppose. I'm totally not ready to let my girl go off for full days. Uh, heart breaker.
