Today is going to be full of wonderfully sad and poignant moment courtesy of my kindergartner and my co-worker, Kara. I couldn’t even tell the story of my youngest meeting her first teacher yesterday without crying, then having Heather laugh at me! (but only because she’s been going through the same thing and Kara can barely stand to be around us).
Kara goes back to school in a few days and today is her last day until Thanksgiving break! yikes! Kara started as an intern. She could tolerate my mouth, crabby mornings, loud and messy kids and my sloppy home-keeping ways, so I gave her a job.
She’s not going to like that I put that picture in there. Kara also has her own Etsy shop! Go there and look at her stuff. and follow her on Twitter. She rarely swears and has good manners, and yet we get along rather well. Kara has really become part of our family and it’s going to be hard taking up the slack! Heather and I, road-weary battleaxes that we are, haven’t yet deterred her from parenthood or turning into an adult. amazing.
Oh sweet little Ellie! Today is her first day of school. I can’t even believe it. Ellie is hilarious and can have fun anywhere so I think she will love it. That’s all I want to say about that. It makes me a little sad to think that she won’t be here to interrupt the sewing. I’ve not had this much time to myself in a long time and I’m not sure I’ll like it.
Who knew this stay-at-home mom gig would last 7 years?! We’ve been growing AmyD slowly all this time and now I guess it’s time to get at it, right?
