Stop the presses, hold the phone, and wait just a dog gone minute, where has the summer gone?
OK, maybe it really isn’t just the summer; it is the last 12 years.
You see, tomorrow, my husband and I will send our oldest child off to his last first day of school.
Twelve years ago, it was a lovely day with two younger brothers in tow, as we headed to the doorstep of Chamisa Elementary to Mrs. Becky Sims’ class.
While a handful of moms celebrated with a noontime margarita party, I found the day sad because from this moment on, life as we know it would change.
There would be no more midday movies, story times, trips to Santa Fe, or weekday opportunities to do nothing at all.
I have learned from parents with older children that this year will fly by, at mach speed. I have learned that there is a lot to do and the time that use to drag by will fly.
Our once former kindergarten students have now become the top dogs or in this case the top ‘Toppers.
If you are the parents of a child entering kindergarten this year, let me tell you how fast this time is going to go. I don’t just mean the year, but the next 12 years.
