The sweetest things in life, aren't things......

First Day of School

 Oh no! Not yet! Not already!
 Where did the summer go? Why does it have to end so quickly?
School is here and I feel sad. I love having my babies home with me. They are all such good kids and help me so much. In fact, is this sad to admit, but I have always had help with Scarlett since she was born. I am sure you are thinking, really?? But yes REALLY!
I wake up to notes attatched to my door that read something like this
"Mom, Don't panic I have Scarlett downstairs and have fed her a bottle. I wanted you to get your sleeps. Sincerely, Savanah" 
And I wake up to "Mom I made you cream O' Wheat" (or sometimes oatmeal) from Caleb.
And I wake up to smothering kisses and tight hugs with phrases like " I love you so much mom, you re sweet. I hope you have a good day today" from Kennedy.

Don't get me wrong I have normal children. They fight.They make messes. By the end of the day I am exhausted just like any other mom. But oh how I will miss waking up to such sweet kind things almost every morning.
Who will hold the baby while I vacuum? 
Who will say "let us play with her" during the day...
YES...I will be honest...I am gonna miss the extra help.
I wonder if I could teach Lukas to make pancakes? HA!

Funny though...I don't think they are sad to start school.
