I have changed my SparkPage to reflect that it is September and the start of a new school year. I find it difficult each fall because though it is a great relief to send the kids off to school again, it marks the passage of another year so clearly. They are no longer small. They become so much more independent each year. I am glad that they are opinionated and full of their own ideas and dreams. They always have been, but it becomes more real and more defined each year. I love them as they are now, but sometimes I long for just a day or two to enjoy them as babies and toddlers again.
MY daughter wants to be a chef when she grows up and that's all right with me. She can serve me up some food anytime. But, I had to say no to her pancakes because once I start on them I can't have just 1 or 2 they are like chips to me. 3987 days ago
