Look Out Kindergarten, Here Comes Abby

Today is the day. My little girl is now a kindergartner. She was so ready. She did not even want us to walk her to her classroom but I insisted. For 6 years now I have craved alone time but now that it is here my heart is breaking. I am feeling bad about all the times she wanted me to play and I said no because I had laundry to do or dishes to put away. I am feeling bad about not being patient with her, wanting her to do things my way instead of her way. I'm feeling bad about all the television she has watched. As I sit here typing this it just occurred to me that I forgot to put a sweet note in her lunch box today. Ugh...
I am just having one big pity party today. Lord help my husband.

and Baby makes 5

I would like to introduce the newest member of our family. Baby the cat. Baby belonged to my sweet grandmother who passed away a few weeks ago. We are not crazy about the name Baby for a boy cat but just don't feel right changing a name that he has had for 3 years. Oh well.
Abby is thrilled to have two cats. Cleo, not so much.
