First Day of School (thank you god!)

Yesterday was my son's first day of preschool. Last year he went two afternoons a week and this year he is going three mornings a week.

I was so relieved to drop him off because lately my kids have been fighting about everything and it is nice to have a break from the yelling. For three mornings a week it will just be my daughter and I having mommy daughter time and three afternoons a week it will be just my son and I having mommy son time while my daughter takes her nap. Kids together equals chaos and a huge headache for mommy; kids apart equals less chaos and mommy not wanting to run away with the circus.

I am most definitely not just sending my son to school for selfish reasons (if that were the case I would have sent him all day every day). He really enjoys going and being around all of his friends. Plus, he gets to do all sorts of things that I don't have time to do with him at home.

So here is to a good school year and somewhat keeping what little sanity I have left.

  1. Its so nice with Trev in all day, Aubrey gone 4 afternoons a a week and Casey still naps...I get 4 days a week with peace and quiet! Its pure chaos once 2:30 hits and I have to start picking everyone up, paper work, home work etc. But worth it for those 2 hours of peace lol
