My husband just told me that I could now get a boyfriend.
Why now? Because today all three of my children have started school and I am officially HOME ALONE!
Well actually hubby took the day off work to help me ferry three kids and their books to their new classes. So he’s still about.
It truly is the end of an era for me. I haven’t had the house to myself in almost a decade. The last time it was just me here it was when I was 35 weeks pregnant with my first child and on maternity leave.
This was nearly 9 years ago.
I’m sure many of you have been in my position and many more are waiting until you are in my position.
Best/worst part? I didn’t even get to cry! No one was sad, my preppie (first year) was in the same class as his best mate and both my other two had theirs as well.
Talk about a bit of a let down. In a good way.
It’s cloudy but yet I took my sunglasses for those tears I was sure to have. Maybe when my 5-year-old has his official first day in class on Friday I’ll cry.
You see this year the preps have a day in each classroom with new teachers and they’re tested to ensure classes are the right mix.
So it’s not really his first day. That is Friday. But then again, if he’s got his best mate then maybe I won’t ever get to cry.
Which is a good thing. But it just feels so weird that everyone is settled and happy.
I feel a bit like a jilted lover.
Speaking of lovers, the husband needn’t worry about me taking one. One man in my life is enough. I also have THE worst memory which means I’m a shocking liar. The game would be up in seconds.
So there you have it – all of my children are now safely at school and life will never be the same again.
Now it’s time to book lunch by the beach and make myself a coffee and get some work done.
But I can’t help feeling like I should be celebrating or something, like watching TV in my pj’s all day or treating myself to a full day spa treatment.
Maybe tomorrow, or the next, or the next day, or the next day!!!!!!
