My (sniff) Baby (sniff, SNIFF) is 5 today (Bwahhhhh!!)
#2 turns 5 years old today. 5 YEARS OLD!
This has been REALLY tough for me to accept.
As she is still attending pre-school I can still technically call her a pre-schooler. However, in a little over one month's time I won't even be able to say that. She will be a.. a...(GULP) Kindergartner.
I won't be calling her that until she walks through that classroom door, you can bet on that.
Meanwhile I must continue preparing myself for the last day of preschool. I have been preparing since her last day of preschool last school year. I only have about 8 weeks or so left to prepare.
Some of you are probably wondering what I could possibly be up to that is requiring so much preparation.
My goal..to refrain from being a complete and total blubbering mess that day. They always have a family sing along and show all these pictures of the kids from the school year while some sappy song plays. I have to say that things are not looking good for me. Not good at all. I am getting all teary now just thinking and writing about it.
So I suppose I should start coming up with my excuses, ploys to cover my crying, and plotting out quick escape routes from the preschool if things reach total crises.
I used to be rock before I had kids. Rarely had a crying spell. Immediately after giving birth to the first one the floodgates opened and I swear to God they have not shut since.
So Happy Birthday #2.
She is not officially 5 until 10:04 PM CST.
So I can pretend she is still my tiny little 4 year old for another hour and 8 minutes.
