This summer was one for the record books. It was absolutely amazing and just what I needed. I took time off from just about everything to live and enjoy every second.I had so many fun adventures. This is the first year that I am dreading fall. I am usually counting down the days. But this year I am sad to see summer go.
I am also stressing out about Logan starting school. I have no doubt that he will do amazing in Kindergarten. I just cannot wrap my brain around the fact that my baby is leaving the nest. He will be going out into the world and picking up who knows what. I want to always be able to protect my children. I have to trust in the hands of someone else.
I keep seeing everyone post about fall and how they are ready. I am just not ready. I am not ready to let this summer go. Time goes by too fast as it is. There is no need to rush it. I am not ready for the shorter days. I am not ready for the leaves to fall and temperature to drop. I am not ready for my new normal. I’m becoming an empty nester in a sense.
Both the wilds will be in school full time. Everyone keeps saying that I am not going to know what to do with myself. Please stop reminding me. I am well aware. The first week will be very hard for me. For the past 7 years I have been a stay at home mom taking care of my children all day. That’s almost a decade. It’s a hard pill to swallow that this chapter is over.
So let me have my last few days of summer. Let me snuggle my kids a little tighter these next few days. Let me tell them I love them so many times they tell me stop. Let me soak them up and treasure all the memories we made these past few months. Let me wish this summer will never end. I’m just not ready to let it go.
