I've always wanted to own my own bookstore/coffee shop, and this is what I want to call it. I actually hate cherries, except fresh Bing cherries. But honestly, a hot fudge sundae is not complete without a cherry. It's just that extra topping that makes it perfect. And that's what I want out of life...all the extras that God gives to make it "perfect" or at least a little closer to heavenly.

School

My oldest son, Braxton, started school on Monday. It is so hard to believe. My mother-in-law told me when he was born that before I knew it he would go to kindergarten and then just a short while later he'd be coming home saying he was going to get married. I thought she was crazy! :) But it's here and I can't believe it. I didn't cry too much. What made me the saddest was looking at Brady thinking just yesterday Braxton was like this...
Braxton wasn't bothered at all. There were several little boys in his class sobbing, and I asked him if he wanted me to stay. He kind of waved his hand like I was dismissed and told me I could go. I made him let me kiss his hand and had him kiss mine (like The Kissing Hand-great book) and he acted embarrassed! He's only 5!!!
He came home telling me school was "Awesome!" and that he had to go the "Officer" when he fell and hurt his knee and the "Prisoner" put a band-aid on it! Public school these days....
Anyway, we are both surviving! Him probably more so than me, but it is a little less chaotic during the day...

It's about time you posted! I think that Braxton was ready last year! I have a 3rd grader that won't let me kiss her in front of anyone:( I love the Kissing Hand, its so perfect for the first day of school. And the Officer and Prisoner, classic.

I know how you feel I sent one to school this year for the first time this year and it killed me to know that she just walked away and forgot that I was even there. I even went back that afternoon to give the teacher somethings and she didn't even know I was in the room. She was so busy playing with all the other kids. It made me want to cry.

Wow! I can't believe you have one going to school already. Time flies. Glad he had a good day with no tears shed.
