Once Again, The Wheels On The Bus Were Chocolate Donuts
Because Madi and I decided to make a school bus cake again this year to celebrate the beginning of a new school year!
Tomorrow is the first day of school. Leading up to this day last year I was so emotional at the thought of sending my little girl, who up to that point had been home with me, to kindergarten. This year she will be a big first grader and Trev, who isn't quite old enough for kindergarten, will go to Pre-K for 3 hours a day. Right now they are tucked into dreamland and their clothes are laid out, their backpacks are packed, their homemade banana pancakes are cooked and in the freezer waiting for a quick reheat in the morning, their paperwork is completed, and our cute little school bus cake is sitting partially eaten in the refrigerator. As I pause for a second and ponder all of the emotions I was feeling last year, I realize that I don't completely even know how I'm going to feel tomorrow morning as I send both my little loves out the door. What I do know is that I'm totally exhausted...though very excited....but out of nowhere tears just sprang into my eyes and there is a huge lump in my throat...and that a good night's sleep is probably in order for this momma who ready or not has two school age children that were babies just a blink ago.
Now there are tears on my cheeks. Good night, my friends. It's time for me to find rest tonight. And find my courage in the morning.
