You see John II was born when Izabella was in Kindergarten. Look at this picture.
Many know John II turning 5 was hard for me. Maybe its because I got to keep him in a baby like state for longer than most kids. Maybe it's because when you are a mom who goes through hours and hours of therapy with your child a bond is formed stronger than anything you can imagine. Maybe it's because John II came to us on the heals of losing a pregnancy and so our appreciation of his life was increased. Or maybe it's just normal mommy uncertainty of who am I when they are in school. Whatever the case, my son may have started off doing some things a little slower than the pack, but he sure has made up for it. Teaching himself to read at 4 was a little much for me...but losing teeth before even entering kinder was the straw.
All day I have been expecting to hear him ask for something, or calling to me so he can show me his latest art piece. But I am excited for him to tell me how school was!
I think part of my emotions is not just for my youngest, but for my oldest. She starts Jr. High today...what!?! Did I just type that? Yep! Jr. High starts in 6'th grade at our school. Wasn't I just holding my little 5 pound baby? Now she is a fashionista. She made breakfast this morning for everyone...where did my babies go?
I can't leave Alina out...after so many struggles we are excited for a year of progress for her. As she said nervous/excited!!
