First Day of School

Because I'm playing catch up due to moving, I can look back on the first day of 7th grade as one that was deceptive. It certainly appeared my child - the good student who is responsible - was in the house. But let's just say that the first three weeks of middle school have been killer. For all involved. 

She did look super cute, though, right?

And nothing will change the fact that I'm so in love with this child. I would do anything for her. But I have also had probably the worst 3-week stretch for parenting in her entire life. I suppose the optimists would say that it can only get better from here...but I said that a week ago and I was soooo wrong, y'all.

This, too, shall pass. I know it will. And one day we'll look back and it will be a blip on the radar. Just remind me of that the next time you see me sobbing in the fetal position. :-)

And, yes, she made me take a first day pic as well. Taylor hates taking pictures right now (the age?) so it was a bit of a bartering process...
