SO it technically is the 33rd week of the year, so it SHOULD be my 33rd post bbuuuttt y'all know me. So the past few
but you know what? i'm actually kinda cool with it, because i know that means he is healthy, safe and doing what all children should do. but it does hurt this mommas heart just a wee bit. Oh and he luvs school and i luv him going to school, LOL! seriously it is nice to have an adult break, but i luv what the experience of school has done for him and his personality. he used to be so so terribly shy like true hide behind momma's apron shy, and he isn't anymore. i don't like that the first month of school last year he came home and whispered in my ear, "Momma what does assh*le mean?" but most his friends have older brothers and sisters and Lord knows it was bound to happen. So just get it outta the way and be done with it, but all the tradeoffs are worth the growth i've seen in his personality and shyness.
Are y'all ready for school to start? When does everyone else's start? Some bloggy buddies up north and in the midwest have already started!! I still have to get all of Buckaroo's school supplies (yes i'm glutton for punishment i always procastinate!) and his gma is taking him and his cousin school clothes shopping next tuesday. SHe tries to always get the grandkids a new outfit for school, yes, i am blessed with great parents! we got some shorts and here in texas we can wear shorts at least 9 if not 10 months out of the year, and lots of shirts. we already have shoes - altho people are totally bugging out on me to buy him new shoes because it's the new school year. I'm all for a few new outfits (altho he needs none he has more clothes than his daddy and i put togather) but to me if he has newer shoes that fit why does one feel like they must buy new shoes? how about you - what is the one thing you always make sure you buy your kids new every year even if they technically don't need it? Backpacks are my thing - i'm sure it stems from me wanting a new backpack every year but not getting it.
