...school days

and in fact- it is all about the shoes...

gibbs kids=
1- 1st grader
1- pre K-er
wow.

you could never imagine...maybe you can.
i am gleaming. and tearing....
my babies are growing up. too fast.

a beautiful little girl
a handsome little boy
{who is all boy- by the way!}

...so ready to conquer the world... at the age of 3.

oh- don't you worry...she is ready to help him.
she will be right by his side...
telling him how to do everything.

so proud.
que bonita familia...
{in every sense ...even the slang meaning...}
ha.


...let's just say i wasn't expecting to cry...
not even a little...
but i did.
a lot.

i couldn't stop it with the canon...
lex was like...
"mom!"

ok. ok.

...as i am walking out she leans over to her friend and says,
"hey jade, do you like my boots?"

turned around and caught the pic in the middle...
how cute is that?! how cute is she?!

she is her mothers daughter.
i love every minute of it...

ok...so i know lex will be fine... she is a social little butterfly.
{hmmm...she gets this from who?}
she knows the deal. has her friends. and she will conquer the world...

as for my little guy. my little boy. my little monster...

i had to go back and check on him...make sure he was okay.
i didn't want him to see me- hence the pic through the glass...
then i got brave and peeked in a little more...

he was okay. he was fine. he was ready to conquer the world too...

{yes. tears. again.}

...as we walk to the car, canon in hand, z asks me if i was okay...
i reluctantly say, "yes" as tears are quietly rolling down my face.
"...he is so little"
in the trying not to cry voice....
