That Time When High School Was Lurking On The Horizon

So… the honest truth is that I have to make this post very quick tonight.  It’s because (1) it’s already after 8:00, and MaMaw really needs to JUST GET SOME SLEEP, because the toddler has been up between 4:00 and 4:40 every! single! morning! this week!, and (2) we have to use the big computer to (ahem!) register the boy for (cough, cough) his freshman year of high school.

Yes.

I said between 4:00 AND 4:40 EVERY DAY THIS WEEK.

And then I said FRESHMAN YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL.

And both of those things make me want to sit on the floor of my dark closet and have myself an ugly cry, because WHY CAN’T YOU SLEEP JUST A TINY BIT LONGER IN THE MORNINGS?  And HOW CAN WE BE SIGNING UP FOR THINGS LIKE HIGH SCHOOL BIOLOGY AND HIGH SCHOOL GEOMETRY, WHEN I JUST TOOK THESE PICTURES LAST WEEK?

Who was born yesterday.

And who needs the computer tonight to go online and sign himself up for freshman classes.

And this is my second-born son:

If you see me out and about tomorrow…

just hold me. And maybe pat my shoulder a little and say, “There, there.  It’s all going to be just fine.”

Y’all have a happy weekend.

  1. How adorable is that first picture??!! I thought you told us that your cats were downright demons from you know where. Oh Hell, we’re all adults here, she told us they were from New Jersey!! So what then, you drove to “Rent-A-Kitten” and then drove all the way back home just to get this perfect photo??
