I am a sucker for milestones.

It's been ten years since I was alone all day and even then I spent my days commuting to the city and working hard. Times have surely changed and as I dropped my (gulp) last KINDERGARTNER off at his first day of school today, I couldn't help but tear up. Believe me, I want the peace and time to grow my business, but I will miss them and all their sweet silliness beyond words. For weeks I've been feeling a bit like I'm standing on the edge of some great unknown, armed with only the information that I must jump, soon. This morning I jumped.

So as the last little birdie leaves my nest for the majority of his waking hours, I forge ahead into another of life's phases, excited about the future and oh so grateful that together, Mike and I made it work. Somehow, without delving too deep into debt and exhaustion, our efforts and will allowed me to be at home with these wonderful little beings that I doubt I deserve. Today, I just feel blessed. And that, as they say, is that.

In hindsight, I'm thinking the timing of all this is just a bit off. Maybe my whole world shouldn't be flipping over on the eve of the monumental birthday I'm about to experience.

And then again, maybe the timing is perfect!

I'm a sucker for milestones too. Teary, gentle smile milestones. Some people see those times as "change" but they are milestones and that one little view or vision makes "it all" worth while.

Awesome photo of Logan, Riley and Finn going off to school.

I miss the emails og years ago that held these snapshots and delieved them moments after events happened and the phone calls that enhanced those noteworthy moments.

You live with your glass half full Molly. You are blessed and you show your children the positive in life. You are a wonderful mother. Love, Mom
