Thank God Almighty, I'm free at last

School supplies in hand, Sage climbed on the big yellow cheese today and started 3rd grade. I love Sage so much, I really do. But I think I love him more during the school year than during the summer. You know, too much of a good thing and all. This morning he popped right up when I woke him and gave me no trouble. I expect the meltdown tomorrow when the new 3rd grade smell wears off.

So here is my little man who asked me if he could walk to the bus stop by himself this year. When I said no that one of his parents would be walking with him, he whined, "But it is so embarrassing!!"

Isn't he handsome with his new Clone Wars lunchbox?

When all the kids were kissed and loaded and the bus pulled away the parents let out whoops of delight. Well it was really the moms, the dads just looked clueless. But don't they always?!

I protest that offensive comment about dads looking clueless! Dads are not your ... oh look - Sports Center's on!

AWWWWWWWW "But it is so embarrassing!" Mooooommm! C'mon! It's so embarrassing!

I friggin' love your kids and your life. There are other blogs in this great land that talk about being a wife/mom, but for whatever reason yours resonates with me so much. I think because you're like the mom I want to be, or see myself being. Whatever that's worth. :)

I love me some J.Hi & fam.

I'm digging his backpack and argyle shirt. Why can't they make adult clothes like that.
