Back-to-School 2018

 

Baby Girl has been back to school for 2 weeks now. This is the first time in a while where she isn’t the new girl anymore.

This also means this is her last first day in elementary school. Eeekk  – where did time go??? 😱 I guess that’s how it feels like when you become a mom at a young age. I’m 32, so technically not-too-old (don’t you dare say anything about that. yes you!), but when I look at my ten-year old I kinda do feel old. Harhar.

Anyways, let’s just stop with these emotional / sentimental thoughts.

It isn’t really easy to celebrate a birthday in the middle of the summer break. Sure, the weather is great for outdoor activities, but it’s a challenge to find friends who are home for the break.
