Welcome #MilkBarrRegulars! I won’t hold you too long this week.
I have been foul lately at work, at home, just in general. I’ve been very emotional and it’s almost unbearable for me to even deal with myself.
I’ve dug deep though and realized I am having a hard time accepting the fact that Aiden is going to MIDDLE SCHOOL! I have dreaded the approach of August the 13th because my first born, my sweet boy will officially be a middle school newbie. I am semi excited but I hope I’m not alone when I say I am the freaking the f*%# out! Middle school is such a huge step and so many new doors open in all different directions. The summer is over and I haven’t prepared AT ALL for this. Between work taking up majority of my day and time, rushing home to get the baby, cook and clean up I’ve completely let time fly and now I stare at a boy who has no haircut, no directional talks about Middle School to prep him and myself and no supplies ready! How did this happen?! WE are not ready! As I throw myself into the last minute school shopping savage inferno that will take place this final weekend before school starts I ask for one thing and one thing only.
Two things actually.
First. To pray that I don’t have an anxiety attack at the stores because I HATE: 1. Last minute shopping 2. Bumping into people 3. Leaving my nest.
Second. I’m asking everyone for some advice as we start this new journey. Anyone else have a Middle school newbie? Anyone already passed this first stage? Even if you’re not a mom, send some great vibes my way and any piece of advice you all may want to share.
I would often hear “do not blink” because it’s that fast! Before you know they are all grown up. Who told me this and why didn’t you slap me and tell me this was true? It all happened too unbelievably fast.
I look forward to all the advice, any words from my wise warrior parents and all the positive vibes. Please drop a comment and help a momma out!
A mom who is afraid to blink more than she already has.
