Summer Fun

So the summer for my two kids was very short. They return to school on the 14th of August. I have kept them very busy with museum trips, free kid events at local malls, play dates, small family only bday celebration for Janette who turned 5 and the list goes on.

However I have to say they only thing on my mind right now is the fact that she isn't a little baby anymore but a little independent self sufficient girl. She starts kindergarten and will be at school  for a full day.  Wow right! Since I am a full time stay at home dad to my two kids I am feeling very emotional about it.

Am I still needed? Do I matter to them now? Is it me or am I just a drama queen? Well, I feel like I am not needed anymore. That what matters most is which friends of theirs will be in the class and yes I am a drama queen. I know the first two don't apply to me but honey I am a drama queen. Just don't let my other half, Sean, know that I admitted that. He would have a field day with this admission. LoL ;-)

So I have cried while folding and hanging her uniform clothes. I have cried while prepping her backpack with school supplies and I also cried when I made her hair appointment, which is on the day before she goes back to school. I'm an emotional mess, I know sob sob sob right!?

What I know for a fact is I am just happy that she is ready, confident and happy to start a new chapter in her school life. She and Jonathan will be at the same school now. That means the same schedule, vacation days, early dismissals and an easier way for me, daddy, to keep track of it all. By this fact, I wouldn't make a great personal assistant, ha! :-P

My partner Sean will be there on their first day of school as well as Janette's hair appointment. I am so happy that he has taken time off the be with us in another milestone memory for our family. He is my heart, my rock and I love him. That is what keeps me grounded and from being a blubbering idiot. He is the calmer of the two of us. I may not always show my emotions but it is hard for me to keep my composure. He is better at it than I am.

Well I close this blog with one last thing. I thank my grandmother who always supported me on everything I ever did as a child, tween, teen, young adult and adulthood. She is a true testament of supporting and loving your children no matter what. I strive and hold myself to that standard everyday.

XOXO and KINDLY,
