I'm a Wimp.

I'm such a wimp.

You know why? Because I miss my kids while they are at school. I hate that Jay spends half his week away from me. I hate that Charley spends two days there.

I hate that we can't just pick up on any day and have an adventure. I miss our summer. I knew at the beginning of the summer that I was going to love having them everyday. But I didn't realize just how much.

I miss going to the zoo on a random Tuesday or going to Austin mid-week. I miss play dates with friends all the time and hitting up our favorite play places. 

More than anything, I just miss my babies. I love their company. I love watching them learn and discover and play. I love teaching them things and taking long morning walks. I love watching their personalities unfold and their senses of humor develop.

I know school is SO good for them. And I truly love and trust their teachers to no end. They love their friends there and seeing how incredibly independent Jay has become is amazing. This is good for them. I know it is. 

But I still miss them terribly during the day.

I can't even imagine how I'm going to be when they leave for college. Yikes!

We are just going to have to pray that our kids go to college somewhere close, and then we can move there! Kidding... kind of :) I know exactly how you feel. I live for the weekends now and cherish our time together so much more now! Cute pics!

I totally know that feeling! I get SO excited every single time Preslie runs through that door to hug me when she comes home or I go get her. Since I had Blakely in May, we really didn't get to have the super fun summer like we had last year (we actually enrolled her in a summer program due to the move and new baby) and I missed it everyday for all of the reasons you said. The positive that I have is that I do have little Blakely home with me and the time where Preslie is away gives me alone time with Blakely! :)
