Stay-at-home Mom? Yes, although I prefer the title "CEO of Our House, Inc." I'm trying my best to raise three happy little kids, manage our home, learn to cook, and be a good wife to my hard-working husband. It's a juggling act that is the most challenging job I've ever had. No raises. No accolades. But plenty of hugs and kisses.
My oldest daughter Alison finished up kindergarten last Wednesday. She is now a First Grader. Gulp. That's big time stuff. I totally remember First Grade. I remember where my desk was in my homeroom. I remember when the kid next to me left his crayons sitting on top the heat vent and they melted everywhere. I remember that the water fountain was right outside my homeroom door.
Alison will remember this stuff too and that just boggles my mind. She's a big kid now. She learned so much this past year. All-day kindergarten was a fantastic experience for her. She entered kindergarten a shy little girl who wrote the letter "s" backwards and left knowing how to count to 200, writing her entire name correctly and whizzing through math problems like nobody's business. God bless you, Teachers! You do a great job!
And look how much she's grown up!
