3-Year-Old Girl Waits For Her Elder Brother To Come Off The School Bus Every Afternoon. Their Greeting Is Simply Heartwarming.
October 8, 2018
Family love is one of the best things ever. Knowing there's someone who is always there for you can get you through anything. Unfortunately, this seems to fade away as the years go by. Families turn on each other and hearts get broken.
It’s official. School has begun. My daughter is off to Pre-K, and my son, to first grade. There were no tears. I sent them out of my house with a gift and well wishes 👋🏽. When I wonder if I enjoyed my children’s baby years enough, I’m reminded of a moment years ago. I completed my very first boot camp for the ROTC, to which, it kicked my butt. I expected to do jumping jacks and pushups, instead I had to zipline across a river, repell from 100 ft fire tower, and complete an intense obstacle course. I came back beat up and could barely walk. My roommate welcomed me back and asked “How was boot camp?!” I kept walking, but my Sargent responded, “she lived!” There are times in motherhood where I feel like I’ve thrived, and there are other times when I celebrate my survival. As my babies go off to school and I want to beat myself up and say I should’ve enjoyed them a little more while they were home, I stop and remind myself that I was there! I did enjoy it, but it’s okay to remember that It was hard.....But I lived. We all did. And we’ll keep living and thriving, and some days, surviving. Cheers to motherhood, and all the moments where we can simply celebrate that we made it ✊🏾 #HappyFirstDayOfSchool #Newbeginnings P.s (Ava refused to take her new bookbag because it didn’t match her outfit. She put a pencil in her purse and took that instead. Y’all pray for my baby 😩🙄)
