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