My Life is Getting Easier but I kind of Don't Like It

Toothsome #3 is now in pre-school three afternoons a week.
Here he is on his first day of pre-school. I also have two kids in school all day now which means for thee afternoons a week, I only have this little one home with me.
Which means, I have three afternoons, when she naps and I can get things done.
This is great. This is good. But, it makes me a little sad.
I love being the mother of young kids.
I like being the lady in the ward/neighborhood who is pregnant every two years.
I like having little people in my home, under foot keeping me walking on the borderline between sanity and insanity.
Since toothsome #4 is our last one, I am done being that woman. I now officially moving into the "raising" children stage and out of the "having" children stage. And, from what I have heard, that is a good and happy stage to be in, but I don't have to like it right now.
A clean house and being able to get things done, doesn't seem like a good trade off.

And all of them so darn cute! I like #3's choice of shirt for his first day.

I know exactly what you mean! I feel the same way. Today at the park it was so strange to only have one to watch. I don't like it either!

I remember feeling those days too. It does get better though.

I'm an older kid kind of person. I love that my daughter has become a friend and someone to do things with... really an interesting person to talk to. Little ones are so cute and fun, but big ones are really great too.
