The girls have almost four weeks of school under their belts.
I continue to be amazed by their love of school and good grades. I'm thankful that homework is relatively pain free. Learning seems to comes easily to them, but they do have their favorite subjects and excel at those more than at their less favorite subjects. Zach was a highly intelligent child and surpassed my skills in Math and Science at an early age, but I don't know that he enjoyed school as much as these girls do.
Every day I wonder how I already have a 5th grader and a 2nd grader. It feels like just days ago that I was wondering when I was ever going to feel something other than exhausted. I nursed each of my kids for a year each. They never had a bottle and didn't sleep through the night until I stopped nursing, which means I woke for feedings every 4 hours every night for a whole year. Yes, I was tired.
Sometimes, I find myself thinking about how I would be an empty nester if Gordon and I had not had our girls. We are lucky to have them, as I had secondary infertility and underwent fertility treatments to bring these two precious girls into our lives.
And I wouldn't change a thing. It was totally worth being exhausted to have still have two special young people around to hug my neck, say Mommy 30 times a day, tell me I'm the best and shower me with I Love You's.
I'd say it has been an excellent return on our investment!
