You start Kindergarten tomorrow. Tomorrow! I am trying really really hard to keep it together. And for the most part I have.
We met your teacher Friday afternoon and she’s sweet. I really like her. She reminds me a lot of me. And just between you and I, I envy her so much right now. The majority of your days will be spent with her. So I am doing a lot of praying for her that she is able to set a fine example for you and your classmates.
I love you Buddy. And although I am a wreck about tomorrow I know you will do awesome! Sister and I will miss you terribly and will be anxiously watching the clock for it to tell us it’s time to go get you and bring you home. To the chaos. To the bliss. To the hot chocolate and Polar Express. To swimming at Mimi’s. To Tai Kwon Do with Kaindan and Tata. To reading stories with Mom and Dad. To bedtimes in our bed. To cartoons and Lucky Charms. Then back to school again so we can do it all over again.
And because I know you worry about me, I will be ok. The crying is temporary. Much like the vomiting I experienced with your brother and sister when they were growing in my belly. You’re growing too now and it hurts a little and it’s uncomfortable, but it will be so worth it. I promise. And Mommy never makes you a promise she can’t keep;)
I love you all way to Jesus.
She was the best thing that happened to her big brother Cole this year. The best thing that happened to us all.
I have been putting off designing the new website for First Comes Love, Then Comes Paper. I was actually having trouble with the branding side of things. I have a few new projects up my sleeve, including collaborations with an event planner, a collaboration with a fellow Momma, and a few of my own projects. Mix that in with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and the birthdays of 2 of the. most. special. people in my life, and well, that just doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for the website.
So this past week I got to do just that. And since not a lot of people read my personal blog, I thought it was just the place to show off what I have come up with so far. I am still looking for a web designer who is able to code it. My favorite one hasn’t responded with a quote, and another one responded and wanted to take half of the credit for my branding (which is a problem since this conflicts with one of my new projects) and he/she also wanted to have the freedom/liberty to “design a new template based on the concept”. Uh, how about not? And just to show fairness, I may have not completely understood his email but I my instincts told me to run. Run far, far away. So I’m still on the hunt. Stalling until I hear from Michelle.
But alas, the unveiling:
Curious to know your thoughts. Ideas. Suggestions.
