Bitter Sweet Back To School

Bitter Sweet Back To School

I hope you have been having a wonderful Summer!  It went by so fast for me and now it is about over and  time for the kids to head back to school. 

I remember when I had young kids and summer was bitter sweet. Sweet because I got to take time out to be Mom, bitter because I had to take time out to be Mom.   It was a time that I had to be spontaneous and more carefree.  It forced me to stop and play and watch my kids, really watch them.  Being a single mom it was hard to relax, slow down to enjoy the time with my kids.  Summer forced me to do that.  And that always brought us closer together.   When Summer was coming to an end the bitter sweet was in reverse.  Now I was use to being more relaxed more carefree, closer to my kids.  And then it was back to school.  Part of me was ready to get back to the normality of no kids to entertain but then there was that sadness that would set in knowing that they were growing up so fast and I just wanted to latch on to our time together. 

 Now my kids are both grown up one living here in Texas the other in Seattle.  I miss those Summers where they depended on me for everything and I had them all to myself.  Where I just sat and watched them play, where we grew closer together.  Such a sweet time.  Now we are all so busy we have to make an appointment to see each other. 

 Now that Summer is winding down and the weather starts to change, in some parts of the United States, and we will be back to following school buses again and I will watch those Mom’s and Dad’s racing through Wal-Mart to get school supplies and sighing as they put their kids on the bus with bitter sweetness.
