This is Friday morning. For now.
Four children: 7, 5, 3 and 10 months
One pack and play for a napping baby.
Two lunch boxes.
Two diaper bags with food for the morning, diapers, bottles, and a ton of bibs.
One bag with mommy's lesson plan and teaching supplies.
This is every Friday morning. Arriving at co-op with everyone and everything in tow.
By 9 AM.
I had to capture it because it is now.
And one day I won't have to tote along so much.
Sometimes it is tough to cherish aspects of now. The lugging around all the "stuff" that comes with this stage is one of those aspects.
And I won't miss it.
And it is one of the big reasons I was ready for co-op to end. As much as we love it. I'll be glad to return in the fall when the pack and play doesn't have to return with me!
But I'll miss that precious baby who spent his mornings napping at co-op.
