I think something is wrong with my calendar. It seems as though we’re in the last week of August, summer is coming to an end and school starts next week.
It went way too fast. I had ideas for the summer, things I would be doing with the extra time we’d have everyday and most of those things didn’t happen. Don’t get me wrong, we had fun, saw friends for playdates, saw immediate family and some of our adult friends. At the same time it seems like we should have done more. But in the paraphrased words of Carrie Bradshaw, we shouldn’t “should” all over ourselves.
Let’s recap what I had hoped for from my pre summer posts.
- Potty Training
- Attempted, no success
- A daily schedule
- Written out, happened twice
- A road trip to visit some of our friends
- I can’t remember if I wrote about this one but regardless, it didn’t happen
Here we are at the end of summer. As I await details of ‘J’s’ class information, I wonder how his adjustment back into the routine will go. Monday and Wednesdays he’ll have Speech and OT again and Tuesday/Thursdays will be school. He went two days a week last year for about 2.5 hours a day. This year, he will be there for 5. I wonder which of his friends will be in his class again and my hope is that he’ll love it as much as he did last year. I know that won’t always be the case so if we cant hang onto it for now, that would be great. As for ‘Baby J,’ we’ll get back into a Mommy and Me class routine and I’m sure she’ll be missing her playmate around the house during the day.
A schedule is great but I want to hang onto these summer days just a bit longer.
