Howdy my friends! I know it's been kind of quiet around here lately but I'm trying to get my writing groove back. I've been on a bit of a hiatus ever since going to BlogHer. Chicago was such an amazing experience and I think it overwhelmed me when I sat down to try and recap it all for you guys. Reason #1 why you haven't seen a BlogHer post from me yet! :) Beyond that, a lot of things have been changing around here lately!

I wrote quite a bit about change at the beginning of the year; in fact my word for 2013 was change. I was hoping and looking for a lot of things to change in my life this year. Up until recently, that hadn't really happened but all of a sudden it seems like I'm getting slammed with change every direction I turn. That's okay, I asked for it - right? 

While I"m not really ready to divulge in all of the happenings of my life as of late - one HUGE change happening right now is that my oldest starts Kindergarten on Monday! *This is where you realize I"m totally FREAKING THE EFF out!* How in the world did this happen anyway??? It seriously seems like just yesterday that she was born. True, I"ve been looking forward to this day for awhile, cause let's face it, Mom needs a break, but y'all I realized tonight - I'm not ready! 

We had Meet The Teacher tonight and she was so pumped!!! I was too, until we entered the school and started walking down the Kindergarten hallway. She was traipsing through like she owned the place and I started to feel the tears welling up in my eyes. Don't worry, I held myself together - barely. However, I know Monday is not going to go as smoothly for 'ol Mom here. Little Brother is having a heard time coping as well. He didn't even want to go  to meet the teacher night, let alone enter sister's classroom. He kept telling me, "I don't want her to go - I miss heeerrrr." Break my heart why dontcha! 

Do you have kids going back to school next week? Are you handling better than I am?
