Seriously--Time Flies

I cannot even believe it. This afternoon I can longer deny the fact that my youngest will be going to school. That's right, I'm going to preschool screening and registration. It seems as if he were just born a few months ago!

The last few days I have really been reflecting back on the time that we've shared. Noah is the only one out of my 3 children that has stayed home with me from day one. He has never, ever, ever been to a baby sitter. I don't know about you, but in my book, that is a Finer Thing!
I have seen every moment (okay not every moment, afterall I am more than just a mom!), every milestone, and have enjoyed every last moment (most of them, anyway).

There have been plenty of laughs,



Scary moments,





about a ton of dirt and mud,





A load of hard work,





And more than enough cuteness to go around.





I will definitely miss you being by my side day in and day out.

Or this case, Daddy's.

My time with you has been a Finer Thing and one of the many highlights of my life as your mom. I know you will have a good time at school!


Love you more my Little Monkey!!

Good grief, Phoebe, don't do that! Now I'm crying and I've got to go get my oldest from school. ;-)

Staying home full-time isn't always easy, but oh... when the time comes to let go...

The sacrifices are so worth it!

Oh this so pulls my heart strings. Definitely a finer thing.

Such sweet pictures :) It's so hard letting our little ones go experience some of the world without us. But he's just going to love preschool!

My youngest will be in Middle School next year. I totally agree, where did the time go. I have 2 in High School, one will be a Senior next year. I can't hardly believe it. Sometimes I feel like I'm just dreaming, the time goes so fast.
Thanks for sharing!
