This is our last weekend before school starts, and I am freaking out. I can hardly believe I am the mother of a second grader! Wasn't it just the other day that she took her first wobbly little steps? Wasn't it? And now we've got school uniforms purchased and a cool "big girl" backpack with no Disney character faces featured on the outside. To commemorate the last Friday before second grade, we've got a breakfast date planned for this morning, and as a special treat, we'll get to have dessert too! She is beyond excited about that, as is my three-year old. Neither one of them will ever suspect that their mommy is quietly dying inside as she watches her two little love bugs grow up right before her eyes. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend, and God bless!
