Today is the last day I will be home with Eddie.
Ok, technically we get Friday too. But after today my school year has officially started.
Part of me is ready for this.
Eddie has been sort of whiny and in a “daddy” phase. This means when I get him up in the morning or after nap, he is DEEPLY disappointed I am not his daddy.
And then he proceeds to ask where daddy is 459723489523 times before noon.
Plus the meltdowns have increased in number and loudness.
We need some time apart.
But you know what? I am sad about it too.
Even though when he woke up this morning he was calling for his daddy…
and he had flung his jammy bottoms to the floor and was almost nude…
and he has a giant, pussing welt of a bug bite on his leg that he keeps complaining about…
and my favorite jammy pants ripped when I sat down by him on the floor to apply cortizon cream that he yelled about…
I still will miss his little face.
He is funny.
He is such a goof ball and it makes me chuckle daily.
But you know what? This home with the boy thing is not the only thing ending.
Today is also my last day that I have to take my progesterone supplements for this pregnancy.
That means this first trimester is about a week and a half from being over.
And this means that I am hoping beyond hope that all this exhaustion and puking GO AWAY.
Just in time for me to be surrounded with teenagers and their drama five days a week.
And just in time for this to be my new normal:
It’s funny because it’s true.
I really think all this change and ending and new starts are a good thing. Really.
It’s what we need to get our stagnant booties in gear around here.
Oh, and speaking of back to school, I wrote more about it over here. (psst. there is a GIVEAWAY involved with that post! Go!)
