Ahhh the weather has cooled some, the days are growing shorter, even the tree outside my bedroom window has started to show signs of fall with a few changing leaves. It is September and with September comes the most wonderful time of the year for many moms! Yes I have had a few of my contemporaries differ in opinion, siting that they will miss their kids as they head off to begin the new school year…but not this mom. Don’t get me wrong…I have had many fun times with the kids this summer like our family vacation, afternoon playdates, trips to the park or resovoir…even a really cool day at the local airport for lunch last Friday where we saw a red baron-like plane and another one which could have easily been one of Orville and Wilbur’s inventions. But nothing is more beautiful than the smell of diesel in a black cloud of smoke as I watch my two little munchkins board their school bus and ride off to a place where they will be for the next 6 hours. It’s a wonderful time, priceless…school…oh how I love school and look forward to the start of the school year!
And I told my kids that if on the first day of school they turn around and take a good look out of the back of the school bus window, they will see their mommy do the strangest of dances…the “Mommy Happy Dance”. I will be dancing in the middle of the street with a grin on my face which will literally reach from ear to ear!
