DJ's first day of School

So today I sent my Buhbuh off to his first day of school, and it was sad! While I fully acknowledge that this is the best for both of us, it is the first time we have spent so many hours apart in a long time! I decided to sign DJ up for mothers morning out not only because baby Asher is coming but because I noticed that we were not really getting along, being together all day every day. Now you are probably thinking how hard is it to get along with a one year old, and if you never had one you were with 24/7 I don't think I can explain it. I was starting to talk to DJ as if he were my peer and my peers as if they were my children. I felt like all I was ever saying was NO, and my rebellious little son has perfected the kind of mean little look that can kill. Let me tell you a nasty look from a one year old can really sting. However, whenever we could spend just a little time apart, maybe an hour or two, my sweet boy would come back to me. He sees me and smiles and laughs, hugs me and gives me kisses and this is the kind of relationship I want with my boy. SO mothers morning out it is, two days a week from 9-2:30 and while DJ had the time of his life I missed him like crazy, but picking him up and seeing that smiling face and getting all of those hugs and kisses made it well worth it. DJ is oficially becoming a big boy now, not walking yet, but I will be sure to let you know as soon as that happens!!

Yeah Amber! You made the wise choice by putting him with other kids and giving yourself a little break before Goliath comes. Sheeesh...you act like you are Super Woman or something. Well, I guess you are!

Love & miss you!
