get that paper bag handy

okay, it just hit me……

next week is my last full week with my little boy before he kisses toddlerhood goodbye and says hello to pre-school……………..

for the love of everything that is holy……….I CAN’T BREATHE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok you are laughing. I am okay with that.  I understand that this may be insane to you.  Let me paint a little picture for you.  Pre-baby I worked.  To say that I loved that work is an understatement.  I LOVED the people I worked with and for.  I was even climbing the ladder so to speak.  Then came baby boy.  My world did a 180.  Seriously.  I quit my job (that was hard).  I couldn’t do it.  I couldn’t leave that little boy.  I know and understand that pretty much every mom feels that way, but I didn’t have the strength to beat it.  Some may say that it borders on insane.  (as you are witnessing here)  I am good with dropping them off or leaving them for a couple of hours.  It’s all good.  Until I don’t know the person and I can’t call and check in on occassion.  Well, I guess technically I could, but you have to ask yourself are you willing to be THAT mom. Fortunately for Ethan, I am not.  (but I still have opportunity to change my mind at any time)  🙂

One week and the path begins……the path of, mom can no longer control everything.  What’s next?  Getting a Porshe and driving off into the sunset into some faraway college.  Seriously, where did I put that paper bag…..I can’t breathe again…

ok, breathe in.  Breath out. 

just one question.  how did this

turn into this

so fast?

***and if that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye……you are stone cold…………….. 😉
