OMG it feels  like just yesterday I was taking my now 10 year old to his first day of kindergaten 9 mnths pregnant with my little devil and now he is starting :(

I got most of school stuff done the last two weekends, uniforms, basic supplies just need back packs lunch box and shoes...saved the best and worst for last he is a HORRIBLE with shoes they have to be SOOOO tight and I can't tie them tight enough and dad leaves LONG before we will have too.

Meanwhile my oldest starts in 28 days and he hasn't tackled the summer reading and I lost his school supplies list (hey kid you handed me 2 crumpled papers thought it was all the summer reading and since thats on line figure would have you turn in nice wrickle free papers)

Where or where is this summer going let alone them growing so fast. At least I have both their first weeks of school off so I get that one last week with my baby and that week he starts to go home and cry about my babies not being babies :)

Oh I was responding to the question about age kids stopped playing with  you and I had a flash back to summer I was pregnant with my soon to be kindy baby. DH still worked nights and I was huge and exhausted by the end of work and my then 5 year old and I would lie down in my room watch TV and play these silly games. Guess what color, guess what number ect and some made up thing of his and then when they baby would start kicking we'd put the remote on my belly and he'd kick it.

Bitter sweet it was the last summer it was just my oldest but also I didn't have as much one on one with this one and now he is almost 5 and thinks he is 10 and he's my last...oh boy good thing I am off the before his first week and his first week of school, think I will be an emotional mess :)
