There are some moments in Life that are so completely surreal and this is one of them. This whole "middle school" thing. My kid is going to Middle School. Tomorrow morning. It does not matter that there has been an orientation, that pens and notebooks and three-ring binders just for science are ready to fill his backpack, it does not matter that I have said things like awesome, sounds fun and you'll be fine, or practice getting up early and finish reading your book there is a quiz on the second day of school.
I am still in some sort of Is this really my Life? shock.
It is just...weird.
Because in the middle of all of this middle school stuff I am just a girl who grew up into a woman who grew babies in her belly and makes dinner and builds Lego towers and scribbles in the margins of her journals, who spends too much on cell phone minutes and texts when she is over the limit. In the middle of all this I can sometimes smell the dusty scent of a hallway in the too-early morning or the musty cigarette trail of a gym teacher after lunch. In the middle of all of this middle school stuff, I stand in awe and wonderment that this, in fact, is mine. What was, what is, what will be.
Instead of continuing on in a rambling, trying to figure out the meaning of Life rant, I decided to focus on maybe making something useful. Something that could say the things I want to say to him before he falls asleep tonight. Also? I really wanted to try out this fun new thing I got and so this is what I came up with. And, since I wasted so much of my never enough time to do anything time on making it, I figured why not post it?
After, of course, I paint my just about third grader's nails.
You know you have to paint your nails for the first day of school, right, Mom?
Right. Of course. From one girl to another, of course. ~
