“One day, when you’re older, you won’t want to hold my hand anymore. And that’s OK. You’ll be bigger and won’t need me to help you cross the street.”

Kyle looked up at me and said, “I’ll always want to hold your hand, Mommy. Always.”

Today was his first day of 1st Grade. There were no tears. Just joy and excitement. I miss him already. 

Lunch by Jae-Ha Kim

I’m not an early riser, but I was up at 5 this morning making sure Kyle had everything he needed for school.

This isn’t a fancy lunch, but this is what he requested:

♦ a salami sandwich with honey mustard

♦ a mozzarella cheese stick

♦ sliced apples

♦ Goldfish crackers.

He actually asked for more crackers, so I threw some extra ones in after I snapped this shot.

The apple / mango sauce is for his snack.

I hope he enjoys eating with all the big kids at school today.

Bon appetit, little one.

    My son starts K in a couple weeks. I am a bit sad about his growing up but eager to get him out of the house I’m sick of his fighting with his younger brother!

    12 years of school – you will enjoy being an empty nester. There is a life after … and that is called “having rubber band kids”. They come and go and sometimes even pay for your coffee (after they raided your pantry). I love my all grown up child come to visit and invite us to come visit.

    I HOPE YOUR SON IS NEVER ASHAMED TO HOLD YOUR HAND !
