No longer my babies

I have a lot to update I know.  Last week was amazing being at Style Week Providence every night.  (Also exhausting, but I'll live.)  Took a small hiatus for the week while I soaked it all in, wrote four articles for Buy-Her and still have two to go.  This weekend I have not been able to get past what tomorrow will bring.

Actual concrete evidence that I no longer have babies

All three of my boys start school tomorrow.  While the Big Guy has been in a pre-K for years, tomorrow it's the big leagues Kindergarten.  And the twins?  Well the Bunny Bee and the Doodle Bop will be in the pre-K classroom right around the corner from the Big Guy's kindergarten room. Same school.  Five mornings a week.  And so it begins.  The realization that I will never ever have babies home with me full time again.

Last week I was serious when I said Jules and I had been through enough having 3 babies each in just a year and a half, school needed to start and not be postponed after Hurricane Irene.  It felt like we had waited so long ... only to have to stop and wait again.  The last few years felt like it took forever to go by in some respects.  I could not see getting here - to this day. 

And now that I am here?  And it's all gone by?  All I can think about is these three little faces.

And wonder how it was we got here.
