Yesterday after school I enrolled my baby in kindergarten for next year. It was a moment I had been dreading for about two years, but I knew he was excited. So it was a bittersweet time. When we pulled up to the elementary school he closely inspected their TWO (!) playgrounds with pleasure. However, he wasn't so sure about the school itself. He kept asking if I was taking him to the dentist (I guess the outside resembles his dentist office a little bit?!)!
|Forever 21 Plus Dress- still available!|
While I filled out enough paperwork to buy another house, or sell my child to the public education system for at least the next 13 years, he played happily in the school library with some of the other new students. I decided to wear this super cute Forever 21+ dress again because I can't get enough of its bright pattern. To pull out the subtle gold details, I knotted a green and gold belt and wore green and gold shoes. Sean wore a Super Mario Bros. muscle shirt. I did not get any pictures of that ;)
Belt- exact from Target
Shoes- similar, similar
So does it get any easier? Last night I let Sean sleep with us. It's a habit we are trying to break, but last night I just wanted my baby in the bed with me. This morning I woke up and felt his hair- it's so coarse and thick now but he used to have the sweetest blond curls- and his tiny shoulder blades- like a bird under my fingertips, so delicate and small- and I wished I could hold on to that moment forever. I thought to myself, "I wish I could freeze time and keep him 5 forever." Then he farted and rolled away from me. Oh well.
