Savannah is mostly liking the 4th grade, but it is obviously still way to early to tell. I think I have worried more about this year than any other. Paul has had to tell me to chill out, which I am definitely trying to.
I think when we are new Mommy's we assume parenting gets easier the older your children get. Truth is, problems/worries/stress just change. I use to worry about sleepless nights with Savannah, now I worry about her being able to stand up for herself in a world that is crazy hard. At the time sleepless nights was a big deal and hard for me, now we face different challenges.
***Things have definitely been more quiet around the house without her here. The babies took a reeeaaallly long nap yesterday, and I didn't mind one bit. I am more productive waking up early, even though I would rather not be a morning person. I have taken the babies to do a couple of things this week without Savannah, but I am excited to start up our Friday afternoon field trips when we pick her up from school.
