Back to school...

So last week they started back at school. Isaac into Year One and Lucas from afternoons to mornings in Preschool. They couldn't have been more excited with Isaac pleading 'Mummy can't we go to school early because I just can't wait!' 

It didn't hurt like last year but somehow it always feels a little bittersweet...
I get excited just like I did as a child about the fresh start, the new clothes and accessories. It marks a change not only in season but in development. Especially as they look so proud and grown up in their new attire...

But I also feel that tug. You mamas know the one. The tug that comes...

Because this time last year was seconds ago...

Because they keep growing up every year, every day, every damn second...

And you want to stop time a little...or a lot...
But before you know it, that feeling passes quickly too. And normalcy takes it's place:

Three days in Lucas is getting a cold...

And Isaac keeps forgetting to hand in his milk money...

And I keep wondering where the morning went when I had planned to get so much done...
Happy September!
