It is just so difficult to watch how fast my babes are growing, and the independence that they feel. Even now when Jack and Emma can play together without me, it is kind of sad. I am such a sap, I know! I am hoping I am not alone in these feelings, and that other mamas can relate at some level to this business of growing up!
On the plus side, this should give me a week full of free mornings to spend with my littlest and to maybe make a dent in the cleaning that needs to be done around here! So let's all cross our fingers that Emma absolutely loves going to "school" and I don't come home and have an anxiety attack and curl up on the couch with Jack until I can pick her up :-)
