Back to School

First Day of School

Brennan is almost 6 months old.  I’m dying inside.  He’s my last little guy, and so far I don’t think he’ll ever do any wrong.  He’s my baby & I’m pretty sure he will have all the characteristics of the “baby of the family.”

I watched the season premier to Parenthood the other night.  If you don’t watch it you should.  It’s a wonderful story about a huge family with side stories into each of their lives.  In the premier, Hallie, is leaving to go to college and her family throws her a going away party.  The week before she leaves her mom plans all sorts of mother/daughter & family stuff for them to do, but really Hallie only wants to hang out with her friends.  It’s not until her last day at home that she really realizes how much she is going to miss her family.  I sat on my couch and cried as I watched her get out of the boarding line at the airport and run to her parents and breakdown as she hugged them bye.  I really cried because I realized that one day my kids are going to leave me. That’s a long ways away though…

This last picture is a very accurate representation of our days! None of my kids are dressed b/c they’ve already gone through two outfits each, toys are strewn from one end of the house to another, Jack & Maddy have silly smiles on their faces, and Brennan looks like he’s trying to figure all these crazy people in his family out! I love them to death!
