Week 2?! Already?! W.O.W.
Pardon the state of the photo, I was having camera issues...more like I was the issue the camera wasn't having! And the kidlets were done with me gettin' all paparazzi on them to wait for me to have a session of deep introspective photo therapy. ;>
Back to School is full of milestones this year. My wee girl, who's not so 'wee' anymore had her very first day of school last week. I really need to have a talk with Mother Nature and/or Father Time, because truly, the time has gone by so fast, much faster than it should.
For over six months, she's talked about getting a 'Tangled' backpack (aka from Disney's movie, Tangled). I kept warning her that we would have to wait & see if Target was selling a Tangled one this year. And thank goodness, there was one pink & lavender backpack with oodles of Disney Princesses on it, including Rapunzel from that treasured movie!
So, Father Time, Mother Nature, when and why did you speed up time?! My boy ditched the character backpack for the first time this year, opting for one with lots of pockets and a padded back. And he was only interested in "cool" clothes for school. Oh and they had to have patterns on them; no preppy polo shirts for him. We compromised. He got to pick out some "cool" new clothes and I get to pick out the outfit for picture day. A Mama's gotta reserve some rights to the cuteness, right?!
We had a rockin' awesome (I'm no longer 'borrowing' that phrase from my kidlet, I'm just outright stealing it now!) first week and we're into the second. Unfortunately, I suspect Father Time and Mother Nature will continue to be up to their ol' tricks, speeding time along.
