Just Doing Some Emotional Processing Over Here

Charlie is starting school on Monday. Like, real school. It's the full-day, five-days-a-week pre-K program at Cubby's school. He asked to go. He wants to go (for the moment, at least). He's ready to go.

I . . . well, I'm kind of sad about the idea of my buddy Charlie getting on that bus and being gone all day long. To say nothing of a little worried about how I'm going to entertain Jack all day long when his exciting big brothers have both deserted him.

Seriously. What the hell am I going to do with that big-brother-worshipping little dude there?

New stages, new challenges, new tiny bits of melancholy for Mom.

These kids, man. They just keep growing up.
