Dawn Of A New Era

Today things have changed. My son who is 2.5 years old started up at preschool. He’ll go in the mornings 5 days a week. I will have 4 hours and 45 minutes to myself M-F now. That’s 1,995 minutes without kids a week. I worry (very slightly) that without having to chase my kids around I’ll have less fire to get work done. Here’s to proving myself wrong!

Next month will kick off The 31 Plays in 31 Days Project and if anything can keep me focused, it’s that.

It’s kinda funny, I’ve been thinking a lot about my son starting school for the past few weeks now. I thought he’d cry, or I’d cry, or we’d all cry… But that didn’t happen (not yet anyway). I have had a great morning, and that makes me feel slightly guilty. Like I should be biting my nails and counting down the minutes until I pick them up. Being a mother is complicated.
