2 of the men in my life are leaving me a.k.a. life is about to change.

Why, you ask?

Finally after six months of legal proceedings, mediation, and writing checks to attorneys: Brent is starting his new job tomorrow (and he is counting down the minutes, I think).

Don't get me wrong. I think he enjoyed being home. For the first few months. And then it got old. He can't wait to be anxiously engaged in something other than a "honey-do" list. I am going to miss having him around as a constant companion to run errands, help with laundry (have I told you how good he is at laundry?), pick up and drop off from school. Those days are over as of tomorrow. He will be traveling a little too so I am in for a rude awakening, of sorts. On the flip side, I TOTALLY prefer getting a paycheck to watching our savings account dwindle. It is a completely welcome trade for both of us!

Also:

Brady will be going to school everyday starting tomorrow. Three days he will go to Janette's "art/playschool" and then two days a week to preschool in Plano. He can not wait! He is soooo ready!

I wasn't going to do it. I wanted him home with me. Afterall, he IS my baby! My last! But the transition of going from 6 playmates every day (5 siblings and dad) to 1 (me) seemed to be too much for him and he was having a really hard time! Apparantly, I am not fun. Janette decided to do this little pre-school for a few hours each day and several of his buddies from church were attending so it seemed like the right thing to do. I feel good about it. Sort of. Afterall, he IS my baby. My last.

I'm being selfish right now and can only stand to have Molly gone from me one day each week. :) They grow up too fast, don't they. Best of luck to you seeing your boys off!
I'm so happy to hear Brent got a job and is able to work again! What a huge blessing for you. I'm sure with him working and all your kids in school, you are lonely at times. I hope all is well for you and your family. Good luck with everything!!
