"It's so hard to say goodbye
to what we had.
The good times that mad us laugh,
outweigh the bad.
And I'll take with me the memories
to be my sunshine
after the rain.
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday."
Boyz II Men
I know I have dated myself quoting a Boys II Men song, but it sums up my feelings as the summer break comes to an end. I am so NOT ready to start this next round of school! I knew it was coming and I shudder at the thought of getting back in the routine. Because we're coming off the Disney high, we haven't really had a long time to practice the BTS routine. I figure if I have breakfast/lunch planned for the week and set the alarm (and actually get up on time) we'll be okay. The first few days/weeks, I'm going to be up helping JB get ready. After that, I'll need him to do it solo.
Today I gave up my Saturday ritual of watching Food Network. JB and I spent some quality time together running errands followed by lunch at the restaurant of his choice. Afterwards we met up with MC and Dad to splash in the water fountains. It was so neat to be able to share that individual time with him. We had fun being silly and reconnecting in a way that we haven't done in a long time. Spending that alone time with him reminded me that he's still that little baby boy with no eyebrows that we brought home from the hospital 6 years ago. I'll have to cling on to that when he's trying my patience!
