Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! I know for most of you with kids, school has started, but my girls have one more week off before their last year of nursery school begins. I’m definitely not one to rush away the summer, but it sure seems like they’ve been home for way too long!
I’m anxiously awaiting their school to begin for two main reasons: (1) This is the first year they will be in separate classes. While I’m excited for them to become more independent and have their own unique experiences, I’m nervous about the adjustment, especially socially. The trials and tribulations of being a #TwinMom. (2) While I’m prepared to pack them lunch everyday (surely you’ve seen my Healthy School Lunch Ideas post), it’s one more item to add to the to-do list, one which seems never-ending as it is.
