Okay, a slightly misleading title there, but I was looking at the third grade school supply list (my daughter is headed for second grade) and I scrolled to the end. No crayons. There I was being a good working mom friend to a coworker whose child is starting kindergarten at our neighborhood school. She doesn’t have the supply list yet, so I sent it to her. Yay me. I got curious about what other grades need, was scanning along, and sob! I’m crying. Literally crying at work because next year my daughter won’t need crayons. How is that possible? Where did the crayon years go? How can they almost be over?
I love crayons. Here’s a picture of the shelf above my desk:
Children’s lives go by so fast. Everyone tells you to enjoy the moment or it will slip away. Well let me tell you, I’m going to enjoy the heck out of the crayon moments from now on! Off to get some new paper and coloring books. We’ve got just over a year.
