I have seen the words school readiness a few times this week. And I’m just not sure I am. Sure it’s exciting. Sure Love Bug is going to look ridiculously cute in her too big uniform. Sure it’s wonderful.
But where the hell did the last four and three quarter years go?
I feel like I blinked and they were gone! I know everyone warned me before I had her to cherish every moment because it goes by at lightning speed, but I think it went by faster. In fact, I’m sure it did.
Today I got confirmation of the hours for her first day of kindergarten. Yesterday I got a note from preschool about bringing in special lunch boxes so they can get used to having their lunch from a lunchbox.
Tomorrow I’ll probably be getting notification of her graduation from grade 12. That’s certainly how it feels right now.
I am determined to soak up every single second of our summertime this year. Even more than usual. Has anyone managed to find the pause button?
