My boys both started school this morning, one in grade 2 and the other in preschool. I was quite sad about it yesterday, not looking forward to the routine, and not liking the idea that my little one will now seemingly need me less! Ha! I know that’s silly, of course he still needs me, maybe even more so when exposed to the ‘real world’. But still, I guess I am just being a “mom” and worrying about the future, wondering how I will keep those doors of communication open, when i am not there to see and hear and be a part of every little thing that goes on in my children’s lives. Also, I have to face the fact that they are not babies anymore, and that does make me sad. Even though I do look forward to seeing how they will change and grow at the different stages of their lives, I will miss that special time (as exhausting as it was) when they were babies in my arms.
O.k enough of this, or I will not be able to continue with this post.
I made a slider box for my youngest to keep some new pencil crayons in etc. and gave it to him along with a card last night before bed. If you recall, I had made my oldest boy a mini covered notebook a few posts back, and I gave that to him last night as well. Both were very happy and I got big kisses and hugs, so I’m so glad that I made them!
If you have any questions about this project, or would like to see a photo tutorial on it, let me know. my first post ever featured these slider boxes, and a written “how to”, in a pdf file you can find in my tutorials section.
Thanks for stopping by!
