I know technically we still have a few more weeks of 'summer', but here at Country Mouse Headquarters, our first family summer is officially over.
While it is nice to return to routine and days spent with just my little guy, I miss my big guy too. I don't say it enough, but that man is such a blessing. He is an integral part of this family, not just a figurehead. He is a loving husband, and a devoted father in every way.
Today is the first full day of school for Matt, and it would be a lie to say I am not sad to see our first summer as family of three draw to a close. I have drawn immense enjoyment from our months of family time. We have splashed, swum, played, and learned together, and I can't believe it went so fast.
Sure, there were times that it was stressful to spend all day everyday together. Sure, he leaves his boxers on the floor and forgets to put the milk away, but all that fades when he would bend down, give me a kiss, and utter those sweet, sweet words in my ear...
"Honey, you can go back to bed, I got him this morning."
