consider it pure joy...

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! :)

oh, c'mon! you know i love The Girls - they are attached to my very heart! but there is something about seeing them happily ensconced in their respective classrooms and walking away knowing that i'm facing a day of peace & quiet, maybe even lunch out with my husband, that makes it oh, so sweet.

in addition to that, the goal of parenthood is to gradually release kids from your home into the world as secure & functional adults. first days of school are reminders of this, and are to be celebrated, not mourned!

now if you'll excuse me, i have some serious selfishness to engage in.

ha!
