Yesterday was September 1st and I admit I so not happy about it. As soon as I realized it was indeed September, I kept hearing, Green Day’s, “Wake Me Up When September Ends” playing in my head.
Got to admit I am a summertime girl any day of the week and even said this out loud to both Emma and Lily this past weekend. Emma agreed and told me that she loved Summer just like Olaf (yup Frozen still lives on here) plus her birthday is in the summer.
Lily was not as amused or happy about my admission and turned to me asking puzzled, “But you don’t like fall? That’s the season my birthday is in.”
Lower then low, I felt in that moment and reassured her, I loved fall for it’s own reasons, but especially because her birthday does indeed occur during this season. I also shared that the day she was born was indeed one of the best days of my life and definitely a reason to celebrate.
Yet, deep down, I am sad to see summer end and definitely a little deflated that school is starting back up (don’t rat me out with Lily).
As most know, Emma indeed starts kindergarten tomorrow (Wednesday). A whole new adventure for her, but I would be lying if I didn’t say I am still nervous and weepy just thinking about it and have been now for days on the verge of tears thinking about how she is growing up and a new chapter is to begin for her.
But in the end, I guess all good things (such as summer have to come to an end), so we can begin anew (like Emma and kindergarten). Like it or not, summer unofficially ended on Labor Day even though the temperatures here are warmer then we had all summer long (yup 90, hot and humid – just in time for school to begin).
September is very much here and even though part of me wishes that you could ‘wake me when it ends’, I know I need to rise to the challenge and be on my game now for all that is to come trying to enjoy all it has in store for us!
Happy September and welcome to the
