We got some excellent news.
Ellie got into charter school we applied to!
This is wonderful and a huge relief to us.
However, all of this school talk has made me realize that in less than a year she will be gone.
No more Tuesday morning breakfasts at 10 am.
No more movie days.
No more trips to mall, just to kill time.
No more Thursday afternoon playdates
No more lazy days watching it snow.
No more pancake lunches.
No more preschool.
No more afternoons playing pretend.
Instead we will have homework.
And new friends.
And school lunches.
And a new job.
And busy nights.
And I will become less of a hero.
And more of a mom.
Which is ok.
It's how things are supposed to be.
But I like being a hero.
It's going so fast.
Just for awhile.
