But, but, but....

I was supposed to write a different post tonight. {Sorry Z, I decided that I wanted to think on that one a bit more.} Instead, you are going to get a look at the emotional turmoil that is a mother more than half-way through summer holidays, about to send not just one, but both of her babies off to school in less than three weeks!

Here we go...

 

I  am anxious for summer to be over and to get back to the routine of the school year

but,

I don't want summer to end, because we haven't done all that I had planned for us yet.

~

I love our carefree days and NOT having to live by a schedule

but,

I miss MY schedule and any time for just me.

~

I want to have crazy summer nights out with my girlfriends

but,

My evenings are the only time I get alone with Natural Urban Dad.

~

At the end of our days, I am touched out, talked out, and I need a time-out

but,

At the end of our days, all I want is to cuddle them as they fall asleep,

breath in their just-bathed smell and memorize every small detail of them at that very moment.

~

I want Summer to be over.

I want Summer to never end.

~

I want them to grow up.

I want them to stay like this forever.

~

 

Sigh,

Natasha~
