Remember those Staples commercials...
Yeah. That's me. And that will be me, making up those lunch boxes today and carting two of three children to school this morning. You see, the Monkey and the Queen go to schools very close to one another, but the Man goes to school a little bit away from them. So Ace and I are dividing and conquering this morning.
And then .... I will have the WHOLE house to myself for about 2 hours until I have to go back and get the Monkey from preschool.
I might ... work. I don't know. Don't hold me to that.
But I do know this: It will be quiet in here. Vewy, vewy quiet.
I am slowly moving toward that mother that I have envied for so many years ... the one who doesn't have a kid in preschool anymore. That will be me next year.
But I will relish this time. I will savor it.
Because I know in nine years, when I am rousing a senior, a sophomore, and an eighth grader from their beds, I will wish for these years to come back.
Happy First Day of School, people.

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
