Today my littlest started school.

My constant companion over the past years, my buddy, my go-to coffee date.

My lovable son.

It's a very bittersweet feeling.  Sending him out into the great big world.  Letting someone else be with him all day long.  Wondering what he's up to.  Hoping he's okay.

I think those thoughts are always stronger with the baby of the family.

But - I am so excited for him.  He can grow and flourish, and begin something new.

And he gets to do what his brother has been doing for years now - and that's pretty enthralling for a 4.5 year old!

Yes, I admit - I am also excited for a little more quiet time.

(And to end my career as a short-order cook for a very demanding customer... ha!)

I'll miss you, O.  But have fun, little man - the world is ready for you!
