"" The Exhausted Mom: No More Babies

August 21, 2012

No More Babies

So we are in the first week of school.  
A time for new beginnings, fresh starts, and new classrooms.

"Little Ricky" started 2nd grade this week.  2nd grade!  
My baby is no longer a baby. 
He was so ready to begin his new year.  Ready to show what he knows and prove that he is a big kid.  (Not to mention, to prove to his little brother that he knows all about 1st grade...)

"The Nag" was a little more jittery.  Even though he knew everyone going in, first grade was a bit more of a challenge for him.  He was also very excited, but more nervous of what to expect.

Picking them up after the first day, they were full of stories about what they did and which of their friends showed up in the same class.  ("The Nag" was also so wiped out he fell asleep in the car on the way home.)

So, as the new school year started, I too was nervous for my little guys, but I also felt sadness that they are no longer babies, but big kids ready to take on a new school year.

How was the new start to your school year?



  1. Glad they had a great first day back!

    Maybe it's time to try for #3??! ;-)

    1. NO WAY!!! I'll just spend lots of time with your babies!!

  2. We don't start for two weeks. While it's sad they are getting older, I'm going to have a 7th and 5th grader this year, it brings a whole new set of things you can do as a family. Have a great year!

    1. Oh my goodness! I don't even want to think about them being in 5th grade, let alone 7th!! Yes, there are definitely more things that we can do as a family....so different!
      Have a great school year, Cathy!!
