My "self-help" pep talk began today.... "I will not cry when I take the boys to school on Thursday. I will not cry when I take the boys to school on Thursday. I will not cry when I take the boys to school on Thursday."
Awe hell, I teared up in the parking lot today on the way to the open house. Take that, and add in an entire hallway of Kindergarten Moms on Thursday and I'll be a blubbering idiot as usual. No pep talk can compete with that.
At least they'll know they're loved right?
And in case you're wondering, we're still a month away from Andrew's baptism and that pep talk started a few weeks ago. I figure I'll be okay as long as I think about him getting baptized several times between now and then and cry about it beforehand....and as long as we don't sing the Baptism song, and I don't look at Andrew the entire time, and no one gets sentimental, and Byron doesn't dunk him----I've got it covered.
