The house is now quiet......

We were ready for the first day of school...... new shoes ( took me an hour just to find a pair that would fit my little guy ... size 3!), new backpacks..... and happy toothless smiles! One went to 2nd grade and the other in Kindergarten. No worries this morning, they kissed and hugged and never looked back. A mother's wish and yet my heart felt the slightest ping of sadness. I love that they are secure ( a very long road I am still traveling with them on ) and independent. I just see them as my little guys . I went home , did my chores and was ready to create all day. Yet, I felt a bit lost ...... it was like trying to sleep without a fan on when you have had a fan on your entire life. Does that make sense. I guess I have to learn how to be independent and secure myself. This could be a long road that I will be traveling alone. Things will never be the same , but they will be o.k. . Too all the moms left to travel the road today..... you will not be alone.
Talk to you soon,

Hi Courtney,
I too will be shedding a tear or two next week when my little one starts kindergarten. He received his little name tag in the mail today so they know who the little guys are when they get off the bus.
I love the commissioned piece! What a wonderful keepsake for the new couple.
Happy creating!

mine are off also...so quiet in the house. My youngest was really wanting those Z Strap shoes (like yours has on). Drove me nuts looking for them.
