I was looking at this photo earlier at my phone and it makes me sad that my kids have grown up a lot! I am so grateful and blessed that I get to be a stay-at-home-mom. It might not be a cloud nine everyday (you know what I mean right, lol) but it's worth every second I spend my time with them.
oday is there first day of school and as I prepared their breakfast, U wanted to cry because I felt a very strong emotion that I couldn't explain. I thought that as they grow older, it would be easier for me to send them to school but no! It doesn't get any easier at all. The only consolation I have is seeing their smiles and their excitement of going back to school.
They never really cried when I sent them to Kindergarten on the first day but I did! I don't cry now when I get back home but still hard for me to see them go on the first day. Today is half day and they have free dress day. Tomorrow will be the start of a full day at school and wearing uniforms.
My daughter woke up so early and made this note for her teacher.
A pose with her classmate before I left.
As I tyoed this, my heart is heavy but at the same time I am excited for their new adventures in learning. Talking about mixed emotions eh? I don't know, maybe I am just too attached to my kids that I have this separation anxiety everytime they go.
In ten years, we only left these two to a caregiver ince when we attended a Navy Bal few years ago. Ut was really hard for me being away from them and it was just for few hours. I don't think I will be able to take it if we will be sparated for weeks or even days, Ih boym I better stop before tears flood my keyboard. Have a great day everyone!
Wow, you guys start way earlier than we do. We don't go back for two more weeks here in MA!ReplyDelete
My kiddo just started and I can hardly stand it. I love when he's home. I miss him when he is at school. It goes fast always enjoy it!ReplyDelete
School starts in two weeks here and it's my youngest first year, talk about depressing!ReplyDelete
The first day of school is always the hardest every year. I will admit though, I like the quiet when the kids are all at school!ReplyDelete
Your kids are adorable! They look very excited on their first day of school. I cried, too, when I sent my first born to nursery.ReplyDelete
Awww, they look so cute. I hope they have an amazing year! Nothing more exciting than getting an education.ReplyDelete
As a former Special Education teacher, I have to say I love the personal note to the teacher. For me notes and cards from my students are the things that I treasured the most!ReplyDelete

My kids have orientation this week to get their schedules and locker numbers. Next week they start school. I am excited to have my days back to start writing more often.ReplyDelete
I remember when my oldest started Kindergarten. I cried all the way back home after dropping her off at school. Before I knew it, I was dropping her off at college. The years go by so fast.ReplyDelete
The first day of school is always so exciting. It's so great for the kids to see their friends they've been missing for a few months.ReplyDelete
They look adorable. I can't wait until my kids go to school but definitely going to miss them being small... I love when kids come home with stories and share their daily events. LolReplyDelete
Happy back to school!!! My kids have two more weeks! My baby is leaving the nest and starting JK!! I can't believe how fast time flies!ReplyDelete
Awe what a sweet post. They both look eager and excited to have a fresh start at school this year. Kids here don't start back until after labor day.ReplyDelete
My youngest daughter graduated high school in May so this is the first year that I haven't had one going back to school. They grow up so fast!!ReplyDelete
I personally wish I could have the ability to home school just for the mere fact that I don't want to miss a single moment in their lives. I think, i know I'm going to cry myself.ReplyDelete
your kids are so adorable ! hope they enjoyed their 1st day of school! My kids just started their summer break ( preschool)ReplyDelete
I understand what you are going through. Every mom and dad have mixed feelings everytime school starts. Just remember that your kids are doing well in school and working towards a better future. Just continue to support them to reach their dreams. Hugs!ReplyDelete
For sure your daughter loves her first school day. By the looks of it, she will surely enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Your kids look so happy! I wish mine looked that happy on the first day back each year :-). They don't go back until the second week of September, so they're enjoying their break!ReplyDelete
Your kids look very happy and btw are beautiful! My kids will start next week and I am sure they won't be smiling. hahahaReplyDelete
Awww I think I was getting teary eyed reading your post. My kiddos don't start until the 31st but my youngest has never been away from me at all and he's starting preschool this year, I'm very sad about it but I know he will love it.ReplyDelete
Aw, they look so happy! We don't start school for nearly a month but I'm already missing them!ReplyDelete
I’m dreading the day that my little boy has to start school! The time is moving on far too quickly!ReplyDelete
The first day of school for my daughter was not too bad. She had been to preschool, so she was adjusted already. However, the first day of day care, now that's a completely different story...ReplyDelete
School will start here on Wednesday yet and just like your daughter, our son is starting middle school this year. Sad, I know, but we can't help it. :)ReplyDelete
I always cried on the first day of school. Till I started homeschooling, now we have a huge celebration to start our first day with tears of laughter and giggles! Hope your littles have a great school year :DReplyDelete
School started here yesterday. I love your kids pics, they are adorable!ReplyDelete
Oh, they are so cute! Kiddo starts school on the 8th. We have open house tonight to meet her teachers, she can see where her locker is, learn more about the middle school as shes starting there this year. So exciting and a bit of anxiety too!ReplyDelete
Ah time goes by so quickly, doesn't it?? I can't believe it's that time of year again already! The kids look great!ReplyDelete
We still have few weeks left before the first day of College for my kids. They are so excited to go this year.ReplyDelete
It is amazing how quickly they grow up. My youngest has a year left before he goes off to school. It seems like yesterday that he was born. I also have an 8th grader and 12th grader too.ReplyDelete
We aren't back to school until after Labor day here. And I'm intending to homeschool my youngest when she's ready.ReplyDelete
Cute pictures, my son goes back to school next week. I still plan to be there for his first day of 6th grade. This is also his last year of elementary school and I'm feeling some type of way. Like you I thought it would get easier as he got older.ReplyDelete
Aww enjoy every minute of it! My "baby" starts his senior year on Friday... I can't believe how the time has flown!ReplyDelete
Last week was the first day of school for children here in Atlanta. I think its adorable when my timeline is filled of photos of kids and their first day for the year!!ReplyDelete
How cute are your little ones and their smiles were contagious today! I never had any preparation for my first day, as I was just sent!ReplyDelete
AH... cute kids... You can't carry them on your neck anymore cause they're big now.. but I believe there's nothing to be sad about that. I think they are smart kids though.ReplyDelete
I felt the same way when I sent my nephew off to school for the first time. Your kids are adorable and they look like the are enjoying every min of it! You guys def started way earlier then we do LOL the pictures are great!ReplyDelete
Awwww just loving the first day of school pics!!!! My daughter starts real school in September!!! Can't believe it!ReplyDelete
