Max is back - hooray! - which also means summer is coming to an end, which already means we are four days into the new school year. O to the M to the G, where did the summer go?! O.K., first things firs: I missed Max so much, the first day he was back I couldn't help but smother him with hugs and kisses. All. Day. Long. He is getting to the age where public hand-holding, cheek-pinching and random acts of love from me are becoming less and less popular with him. Oh, the moments when he runs toward me with his arms open when I pick him up from school - something I deeply cherish - I have a feeling will be coming to an end. He is becoming more socially aware of himself, his friends, me, other adults around and as great as it sounds, he is becoming more independent, where I am learning how to control my outburst of love around him and not to embarrass my lil' man. Life is tough, you guys!
Back to school is such a crazy time, but this year I was a total mommy pro; I ordered Max's school supplies back in June, and they were supposed to be delivered right to his classroom. Well, that didn't quite happen as planned. I've been trying to locate my son's school supplies since Monday. Any savvy mommies out there who know how find a huge box of school supplies? #epicfail
Let's talk summer for a moment. I love summer and every year I am a bit sad when the air gets cooler and you sense the scent of fall all around you. Evenings become shorter and you have the hardest time getting out of bed in the morning, you switch from rose to red wine and before you know it there will be snow on the ground. Ok, I know, I know... we still have September, but the leaves will be falling in no time and my son will start making a list of what he wants for Christmas. This summer was a busy one for our family. We moved, I lost a cat (wait till you hear this story), I made new friends and my life took a huge turn (I cannot contain myself to share this with you, but honestly I feel it is too soon).
I am getting used to our new routine with Max and truly, as much as I love summer, am looking forward to fall and all the school adventures with Max. Science projects, pfff!
Note: Dear summer, I will miss you with your sizzling sun and tan lines.
