Today is the FIRST long day of preschool! They do this for Kindergarten preparation. My glimpse into next year, and what it will feel like to "only" have 3 left at home.

It's quiet. I'm having an issue. I love hanging out with my buddy. Ethan loves to clean, and dance, and cuddle with mama. I miss him....and it's only 10 o'clock.

I know I will get used to it, I know I will. Until now, Ethan has been LITERALLY attached to me. He nursed for 2 years, I wore him in my famous sling forEVER. He didn't even want to come out! He was my 43 weeker, born only with a much needed induction. At almost 5 years old, Ethan is the one to help me with all the chores, and he always wants his "Cuddle with mama" time where we snuggle up on the couch and watch a favorite cartoon.

Man, I am going to miss him next year. Kindergarten registration is 3/25, and I am so so so sad. I know he will do well, but it's going to be a HUGE adjustment for me. :) My baby boy is growing up.

Speaking of, Holy GROWTH SPURT BATMAN! I put jeans on Ethan this morning, size 4 boys. I swear this same pair of jeans fit him last week! I had to take out the adjustable waistband, and they were a little too short! WOW!!!! Time for some new clothes. :) I wait for 2:45.

I can relate to this. Today, I told Shawn that it's VERY STRANGE to just be toting around one kid. Ever since I had Nathan in 2004, I've ALWAYS had more than one child to take with me. I did enjoy the one-on-one time with Hallie, but I was missing my cuddly, lovey boy too. It's going to be a big adjustment next year.
