Has it happened to you yet? Just yesterday I dropped both of my girls off in the carpool line, and they skipped happily into school. 
As I waited for a safe gap to turn across traffic, I glanced in my rearview mirror and saw two empty car seats. Where just moments before there was happy chatter filling that backseat, now there was silence. Where two smiling faces normally obscured my rear view, now I could see wide and clear out the back SUV window.

You did it! You survived the summer with your kids. And now you’re handing them over to the brave soul who will spend every day with them in their respective classrooms. Sorry not sorry that you’ll be sipping your Starbucks kid free until fall break at least.

Remember when you were expecting your first child and hoped that eventually you could regain some resemblance of your pre-mom body? Many of us have been able to pull that off by opting for Chick-Fil-A salads over nuggets, 5am sweat sessions over an extra hour of sleep, and sipping pink drinks instead of Dr. Peppers. And some of us who are quite proud of those pre-mom abs on a post-baby body, plaster those summer pool pics all over Instagram. Hey those bragging rights were hard earned.

Starting to work out again post baby took me WAY longer then I’d like to admit.

And when she was down for a nap I felt like I didn’t have the emotional or physical energy to work out! Hence the waiting (probably too long) until now to start working out again!

Let’s be real for a minute. When it comes to having your first baby to having your fourth, it looks very different, every time. You may still prepare the same way by frantically nesting a spot in your house for a newborn or making sure every dog hair is swept up off the floor & furniture. But, the amount of baby items & clothes begin to decrease with every child.
