sweet days ahead...

and so another school year begins...
and the school supply list gets more ridiculous every year.
ridiculous or not-
and of course...
is a must.

this is how we roll...

bff bracelets/hair ties/anklets
a must.
and so is target.

the backpack mission came to an end on sat-
lex- or shall i say "Alexis"
"mama is not going to another 15 different stores and locations...
better hope they have one here."
that was a close one.
and it fits.

and how 'bout that little rockstar.
he's awesome. he's my guy. my little buddy boy.
my bub-ee.
i love that he rocks his
com-berse* and peace shurt*.
he'd where it everyday if i let him...
he loves his backpack
from last year-
imagine that.

action hero
{that sounds better}
vintage metal lunch box.

annnnd here we go....

when will they realize
that this is what i do.
and i will-
grumpy put that lens down faces and all.

dylan unfazed by all the drama of
"first day of school"
he's more into the playdough.
gimme that playdough.
hugs and kisses.

"bye buddy i love you, have a great day!"
no reaction.
"bye buddy. dylan. dylan?!"

ah ha!
eye contact

"bye mama. i love you"

and off to see little miss to her class...
completely and totally annoyed-

"mom! i know where my class is!"
so do i-
let's go.
siiigh.....where's my 2 year old chongo bow little bebe...

though she is "too big" for her mama to walk her to class
she reminds me it's only because it's the first day of school.
that's funny because...
she keeps hugging me and telling me how much she loves me.
she is glad i am here.
she knows i know that.

composition books.
functional pretty ones.
in there place.

a desk.
awaiting a very smart, confident, beautiful, amazing little girl
for her first day of 2nd grade.

followed by a look i know all to well.
{i give the same one}
a quick reminder...

okaaaaay... i'm going...i love you

happy first day of school!
sweetest days await...

i love you.
ok bye.

*i love that wittle voice...
