13 days

In 13 days it will be the first day of school.
In 15 days BB will go to all day kindergarten for the first time.
There is a bit of anxiety about these two things.
There are a few things left to pack into summer.
A couple supplies are missing from the list (you know the elusive one or two things??)
There has been arguing.
Lots of fun too.
My first time with everyone in school all day.
They still need me…I am cool with this transition.
I love being the mama of big kids.
I think sometimes it is easy to overlook ways that they will always need you.
A new thing this summer is jumping off the diving boards.
This made me stop and think…I breath easy when they reach the ladder.
BB waves at me each time before he jumps.
Even when they stop waving and looking for you overtly, do they ever really stop wanting you to watch them jump?
I don’t think so.
Breathing and balancing a love of now and a smile to what is up next.
