I know people say this all the time, but time really does fly by, doesn’t it?  Don’t you remember when you were a kid and it seemed like it took forever for Christmas to come and now you blink twice and it’s back again?!

Well, I’m really feeling it today.  I’m going to step away from the design topics today, because it’s a big day around our house.  My youngest left for kindergarten this morning.  Now, there are good things about this.  Both my girls are now in school all day, which gives me a lot more time to do what I’ve always wanted to do.  Take on more design projects, tackle some of my own DIY projects and do more blogging.

But, on the other hand, it is so bittersweet.  Where did the time go?  I mean seriously, can she possibly be old enough to go to school, all day?  This is the little girl I see…

Just a sweet baby.

But this is reality.  Still so young, but so ready to go.  But, I know that this is her first of many steps away from me.

She asked me last night if she could get up in the morning and watch her shows and drink her chocolate milk before school.  I said no, you’ll have to get up right away and get ready for the bus.  She started to cry.  It’s so hard that she’s beginning to realize how much her world is about to change.  I try to be strong and tell her how much fun she’s going to have all the while knowing that it is a big change and that I will miss her laugh and her hugs during the day.

I know that this is the way life goes, but it wasn’t quite this hard when my oldest went to kindergarten (or was it and I just blocked it all out?).  I had a 2 year old at home that still needed me 24/7.   But look at them now.

They are both so excited to go to school and I am too, but it’s a big change and I think it’s a little hard for all of us.  Today will be a tough day for me, but I’ll make it through.  This is what it’s all about, right?  Time will just fly on to the next big change, just a blink away…
