When I started this blog, the Bee was about halfway through kindergarten. In just a few weeks, the school year will be over and I will be the parent of an entering middle-schooler.

The Bee is definitely ready for sixth grade, but I’m not sure I am.

We visited a friend today, who just had a new baby. I was kicking a soccer ball around their yard with the Potato and my friend’s daughter, and I told the Potato, “it’s hard to remember that you were once that little.” He looked at me in disbelief—I’m not sure if it was to say, “Mom, of course you remember,” or “Mom, I was never that little.”
