Do you hear that?? don't hear that? Hmmm...oh wait, that is silence. That is the sound of my cell phone not ringing 18 times a day. That is the sound of my children not fighting with each other.'s a great sound.

Today was their first day of school. I walked The Girl in to her class (which is ALL the way at the end of the building) and got her supplies put up. She was trying to look cool, special, and hot stuff all the way to her class. I know she was looking to see if she saw any of her friends. By the time we got to her class she could barely contain herself. She was almost frantic trying to take it all in. She gave me a great big hug before I left...and it was then that I remembered that she loves me. Through it all...she loves me.

After the million mile walk back to my car it was The Boy's turn to be dropped off at school. He insisted I drop him off at the corner. WHAT??? No...that wouldn't be ANY kind of fun. I proceeded to tell him that, No, I wouldn't be dropping him off at the corner. I was going to park and walk him in also (sidenote: he's in 7th grade this year) and before leaving I was going to plant a great big smacker on his cheek! Wait...where's my lipstick?? "Mawwwwwmmmmmm, no! please please please don't go in" (insert evil mom laughter here)

So I relented, I dropped him off in front of the school. But you know what?? He climbed over to my seat and gave me a kiss on the cheek. He loves me too.

I hope they have great days today. This is the beginning of another fun filled year. I can't wait to see what they learn, what they accomplish, what they are capable of. It's going to be a great year.

...and they love me
