Kindergarten - What? Whoa!

I know, I said I was stepping away from this blogging thing. But guess what? It's hard to do.

I just have too many words.

Yup, themes will be shifting gears here, I've still got to figure out how I want to do that, but - here's a little something about the twins....

They started K this year. It's full day which means I've got a lot of time on my hands now.

This is what I posted on FB the day they started school....

"There were days when we wondered... would they walk, would they talk? What would be Addison's cognitive abilities? Six years ago, they were literally very tiny little embryos growing. Five years ago they were home and we were elbows deep in feeding tubes, counting calories and every therapy service under the sun as well as countless doctor's appts.

We still worried and wondered.

Today, I watched as they walked inside school, hand in hand. Tomorrow, they'll get on the 'big kid bus' and they'll be gone all day.

I'll cry, I'll miss them like crazy, and I'll worry. But above all, I'll rejoice because out of all of the darkness - the infertility, the IVF, the high risk pregnancy and the NICU stay - there has come so much light. So much hope. And growth.

They've surpassed every expectation, every 'should' and 'could', they've defied the odds. And because of that, I'm proud.

This year is opening doors for big changes for all of us, and I'm excited to see where it will lead. For the last 5 years I've been a full time mom - 24/7. I wouldn't change it for the world. But now, I'll be finding myself too, while Addison and Blake are off finding who they are too. Without each other (separate classes) and without me too.

Just remember friends and family, nothing is impossible. Even the word itself says "I'm Possible".

And now I shall go cry myself to sleep LOL."
