Today Paczki started first grade.
As much as this summer sucked for all of us in terms of spending too much time together in close quarters, it was sad to see my first kid go back to school. Long gone is the shy little girl who was hesitant about going to school. FullEclipse, K2, and I dropped her off and waiting until Packzi walked to her classroom. We will pick her up as well. This is a tradition I hope to keep for many years.
It is very surprising to see how much time has passed. If there is a regret to have, is the fact that I did not hold Paczki as much as I should have when she was a baby. But I am making it up with lots of kisses and silly games.
Can we slow time down? Paczki keeps growing and growing. Pretty soon, My Little Pony will give way to something else. My baby needs to enjoy her childhood. Who needs homework at 6 1/2? Right?
Today Paczki gets her favorite meal as a way to start the new school year. One of many many many meals to come with our kids.
Despite of the fact that FullEclipse lost his job, I cannot be bitter. Money comes and goes, but our family stays the same. I am truly blessed even if at times I lose hope.
Enjoy your day love of my life. You will kick major ass in First Grade!
