that my baby is old enough to be a first grader. The first day of school was this Thursday, and it was rough… for me (and Elliott). Ethan was nothing but excited. It is so hard for me to believe that he is really six years old. A school kid. I can remember our first few weeks with our screaming little newborn Ethan like they were yesterday (and my memory generally isn’t that good. lol!) I want to shelter him and keep him as my little baby forever. I’m just not ready to send him out into the big, bad world.
