As I type this, it is the final day of what has felt like the LONGEST. MONTH. EVER. I’m still not completely convinced that February will actually arrive tomorrow. Based on the number of memes I’ve seen on the internet, I’m not alone in feeling this way.
Between spending the first week of the month home with kids on winter break, trying to get back into the swing of real life, 3 separate home-from-school illnesses, and now almost an entire week off due to extreme cold, January has been…challenging.
Today was a first on several different levels. First of all, it was Parker’s first official snow day! And second, it was the first time in my life I’ve ever experienced a snow day…in November. Definitely didn’t see that coming!
Last year, we started entertaining the idea of a Halloween-themed Disney cruise thanks to my son Parker’s love for this particular holiday, and this fall, we made it happen. The best part was that the entire trip was a complete surprise to the kids!
This past week as we’ve been preparing for my son’s first day of kindergarten, I can’t help but think about how the past 5 years have flown by so quickly. I remember scrolling through Facebook and seeing all the first day of school photos, feeling sad for those parents while squeezing my own baby tight.
