Feelings, whoa whoa whoa, feelings

Hi friends (if there are any of you left reading this since I have been gone for soooo long). I am missing my blog. I've been thinking, why have I been neglecting it? I know why. My sweet baby boy, who has somehow become 5 years old right in front of my eyes, is starting Kindergarten in two weeks. I'm so excited for him, truly. I think he will love it--learning so much, making friends (which comes so easily for him), etc. But at the same time, I am having lots of sadness as a Mom. I have spent every day with him, have been the one home with him since he was born. I've taken care of him when he's sick, hurt, mad, happy, silly . . . everything. Just being his mom, which I wouldn't trade for a second, even when I'm frustrated and having one of those "moments." And now he's starting his school career, being gone every day, and while I know these are wonderful, amazing times for him, things are changing. His life is starting a new chapter, and it's sad for me, although he will never know this. I just love him more than he will ever know. So, blog, I'm neglecting you because I want to savor these last weeks with Matthew before the next chapter begins. Every. Single. Moment.

5 people had nice things to say:

That is so sweet and I'm sure your baby boy will appreciate every minute you spend with him before school! Don't worry, your blogger buddies are still here :)

I'm having similar feelings already...I'll be right there crying with ya on the boys' first days of school (okay, Cade's just going to daycare). But waterproof mascara and chocolate will have to get us by! At least you can go home to Molly and a mimosa!

I read this as I held a sleeping Benjamin and I was feeling a little sad that he was 2 months old already. I can't even imagine what you must be feeling! Hang in there and hug your big kid for me!
