On Monday both of my kids will start school. This is the first time that they will both be in school all day. It will be quite a change for me. Every morning after I drop them off to school, I will have a few hours alone, before I have to go to work myself. And then I won't see them until their bed time when I come home from work.
Right now, I am not sure how I feel about all that. Excited to have some time to myself, and yet sad, to be away from them most of the day. But they are growing up, and I am growing up along. I am not a mom to babies anymore, but to school age children.
