Not that long ago, my day began with the sound of a whispery little boy voice…
Mama – Is it the first day of school yet?
No darlin. It is still 10 more days until the first day of school…
I had no idea our middle child would make this into a regular thing…
Mama? Is it the first day of school YET?
No darlin. It is just 9 more days until the first day of school
And then I can tell my teacher my name is Bruce Wayne?
Yes Puddin. We can tell your teacher your other name is Bruce Wayne…
Maaah – oommmmm? Is it the first day of school YET?
No sweetheart it’s still 5 more days away. Thats all the fingers on one hand left to go.
And then I can wear my Batman backpack?
Yes hunny – then you can wear your Batman backpack…
Mommy? Is it the first day of school yet?
Yes hunny. Today is your first day of school!
WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!! IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF MY BRAND NEW SCHOOL!!!!!
I get to wear my brand new clothes and my brand new shoes and meet my brand new friends!
It takes a very special person to do the job that you do.
I admire your patience, creativity, and enthusiasm.
I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers this school year.
And all the Mothers everywhere said, Amen.
