For the first time in a decade, I only said goodbye to one son this morning, the first day of school.
Only one child got out of bed (his older brother’s, to be exact) and prepared for what always is such a big day in our house.
Now that my #1 son is away at college (seems so odd to write that!), I only have one child who needs a lunch. Fortunately, my #2 son’s lunch always has been easier to prepare than his older brother’s. I must admit I won’t miss sweating to get both of their reusable bags filled on time every morning.
My #2 son won’t miss sharing the iMac with his internet-hogging older brother. He has the computer all to himself now.
He might willingly give up that perk, though, if his older brother would just come home and give him rides to school so he doesn’t have to endure the dreaded bus!
