When did they get to be so big?
Tomorrow, these two little boys will be starting another school year. 4th grader, can that be? Junior high? Yesterday, he was 2 weeks old and curled up in my arms as he napped. Three short years until he starts high school, and his nana is already in mourning. Just kidding..................I think.
So tomorrow begins another school year, and here I am tonight wondering what the year will bring. Oh it would be nice if they made straight As and won every award on awards night. Sure it would.........not going to lie..............but my very favorite award would be one for kindness. So here's hoping their year will be full of kindness from them as well as to them, full of hope and optimism, full of wisdom to make the best decisions, and most of all, full of joy. Their smiling faces will be reward enough for me.
Tonight, my sweet boys, I wish you a pleasant evening and deep sleep full of smiling dreams with ne'er a thought about school. Tomorrow is your day to shine.
I love you.
