Tomorrow it the big day around here! K-Day is officially a few hours away and emotions are running wild in the house. Logan is scared for tomorrow but even after admitting so he turned right back into his goofball self. Jared is ready to get back on the school routine and out of the summer lag and I am excited yet sad all at the same time. Talk about a bunch of moody peeps! Gee…..
This evening I have been reflecting back on our journey to this point. It’s amazing how quickly 5 1/2 years can pass by. Everyone always tells you to savor moments, cherish them when they’re little cause they’ll grow so quickly. You try to take their advice but you can never truly understand until you’ve watched your little one grow and develop so rapidly. There is no greater joy than watching your flesh and blood grow up yet no greater pain than realizing time is fleeting and too fast. There have been many times I have wanted to bottle up a moment and preserve it so that I could re-live it and re-visit it. But life doesn’t work like that and we only have those moments in our memory to comfort us in times like these when we start loosen our grip and send our babies out into the big world.
One thing has stuck out in my mind tonight and that is the one other person who has shared my joys and laughter with our son.
There is no other person I would want to build a life with than my husband. He has truly been the best father I could have ever asked for my children. His unconditional love, support, encouragement and manner in which he raises our boys has made them into who they are today. I have no doubt in my mind they will grow up knowing what it’s like to be a good man and a good father. No matter what we have been through in the past 5 years, he has been by my side through the labor, the sleepless nights, the first steps, and all the joys that followed. I can send Logan off to school knowing the love of my life will be there to help wipe my tears.
Logan informed me tonight that he is bummed he is going to have to find new girlfriends. Apprantly that is “a lot of work.” After I contained my laughter I told him they would all fall for his big blue eyes. (this is the same child who had 14 girlfriends after 2 days in preschool) I’m sure his lady’s man status will continue.
No matter what this new chapter brings for us I know we will always be Logans biggest fans and his cheerleaders. I also know he will exceed all of our expectations and touch everyone he comes across. He is the most amazing little man and I’m excited we get to share our precious gift with the rest of the world.
Sending luck with all of our new chapters….
