Hello again. Remember me?
It’s been a while. I’ve been around. Not much is different except that I’ve been gobbled up by kindergarten, so everything is different. I was not prepared for how much things would change. Mostly, it’s the schedule and having to have Abby in bed at a set time every night, so no more late night Wonder Woman marathons. Bummer. Oh, and homework. Homework! Every night. On weekends. And vacations. When I was in kindergarten, I think I glued beans on construction paper. I certainly didn’t have homework.
So that is what has been taking up all my energy lately. But I’m getting used to it, settling into a routine, and freeing up some brain space.
The adjustment to kindergarten was much smoother for Abby. She loved it right away. Her school is small and sweet and lovely. Really lovely. When she is grown, her memories of elementary school will be peppered with sweeping views, historic neighborhoods, iconic landmarks, bougainvillea and the scent of wild anise.
I am slowly coming back to this space and checking in on my favorite blogs. I hope we can spend some time here together soon.
