A few weeks ago, I made myself laugh. The girls like a Korean singing group called BTS. I’m still not sure what it means, but I said, “Back To school!”
I thought it was funny, but the kiddos just shook their head. Hahaha!
Well, last Wednesday, I had to take the kids to their school for a COVID Test. The school wanted each student to test negative before heading back. They each did great. MyMy actually did her first test a couple of weeks prior, because she wasn’t feeling well – and she was such a sport.
Today, it’s the kid’s FIRST DAY back to school since COVID. They are so excited! It’s also Mei Mei’s Senior Sunrise. She had the little ones get dressed early, she packed them their lunches and off they went. They get to spend this day with their Ate. She wasn’t going to go, but daddy was able to convince her. She calls the little ones her ‘best friends.’
The other night, hubby said, “We have great kids…” while listening to them laugh and giggle in the room. “We sure do,” I said.
I cry a little each time I think about how fast they’re growing. As a parent, we always want to be there for our kids and spend every moment them and never wanting to let go. Sometimes, we forget who we are and we put in so much energy to keep them happy.
I think about this morning and how I was able to wake up and see them go to school and I just wondered, ‘Yesterday was Sunday, their last day of summer, and what did we do?” …daddy took them out shopping, they got the things they needed for school. What did I do? Nothing…
Early yesterday morning, my co-worker tells me she tested positive for COVID… and I literally sat next to her all day yesterday. The good thing was I had my mask on the entire time and took separate breaks, so there wasn’t a point when I had removed it to get fully exposed. Nonetheless, that’s all I thought about yesterday. This stupid COVID thing blasted through my mind and all I thought about was filtering th house, wearing a mask, and disinfecting everything. I even got upset at big girl over a lunch box (don’t know what got over me at that time – it was over a dumb lunch box). I totally forgot that it was their last day before school starts again.
Well, waking up this morning made me feel better, but I don’t know if it made the kids feel better that I was up for them.
When they left, I went to the girls room and peeked into the boy’s. Big boy still sleeping. The girls tidied up their room… good girls! And Elijah even folded his blanket-awesome!
Have a great day in school kiddos!
