I can tell you that Megan was NOT happy. She was worried about being embarrassed. I told her I just might do this to her on her first day of middle school. With balloons. And streamers. And whistles.
Abby wanted to know what kind of person paints her car.
Brigid and Caroline LOVED it.
I had people honking at me that morning. Parents gave me thumbs up at the stoplight. My fellow co-workers thought I was nuts.
I take my girls to work with me in the morning. We have to be there at 7 a.m. I am fortunate that my boss let me drive the girls to school that morning at 8:30. We took our annual first day of school picture:
Into school we head to pose with Ms. Adamson, the trio's teacher:
Brigid, Caroline, Abby, and Ms. Adamson and yes that is an apple in Abby's hand. Each girl brought their teacher an apple on the first day of school. I love being corny.
Megan with Ms. Moyo.
Ms. Moyo said she waited six years to say "Welcome to Fifth Grade." I said I waited 10 years to hear her say that.
I'm so busy all the time trying to maintain some sort of wonderful life for the girls so they don't ever feel a deficit because this is a divorced family and a multiples family. I feel like I am missing them growing up.
My girls are growing up.
Can someone hit pause?
Just for a little while.
