"Don't It Make Your
Brown Eyes Blue"
Don't know when I've been so blue...
Don't know whats...come over you.
You've found somebody new.
And don't it make my brown eyes blue.

I'll be fine when your gone.
I'll just cry all night long.
Say it isn't true.
And don't it make my brown eyes blue.

Tell me no secrets, tell me some lies.
Give me no reasons, give me alibis.
Tell me you love me and don't let me cry.
Say anything but don't say goodbye!

I didn't mean to treat you bad.
Didn't know just what I had.
But honey now I do...
And don't it make my brown eyes ...
don't it make my brown eyes...
don't it make my brown eyes...BLUE.
Ok, well, it isn't like Ryan is having an affair on me or anything...but truth is...I will tell you...he started kindergarden! I know...can you believe it?! Then the little stinker went and turned 5 on me the very next week! Wouldn't you know, he was MINE. All mine...up until the "S" word came along. Oh ya, "SCHOOL" is now his everything! I showed up to school so excited to see him and ask him how school was going and he started to CRY~! I ran by his side, "Oh Ryan...what is wrong? Did you miss mommy? Did some big bully hurt you? Is your teacher mean to you? What terrible thing happened to make you so upset?!"

His reply? "I don't want you to be here! I want to go with my new friends on the bus!!"

Are you kidding me kid?! I am the one who has taken care of you over the last 5 years! I spent 9 miserable months with you in my belly...many hours of unforgetable labour...5 years of nurturing you into the fine boy you are today. We have cuddled, and snuggled, and laughed and played. I changed your diapers and fed your sweet little self.
And this is the thanks I get?
You were all mine until your teacher came into your life and
now you love her more than me?! How can this be?!
Ok, well whatever the reason is...I know you will be coming home sometime today and I know that at some point over the next 13 years you will come home and say to me,
"I want my mommy"
...right?! Seriously, right?!
Yep, it is true. I was my guys number one gal up until September rolled around and now I am on the back burner. Feeling a little jipped, and kinda miss the little stinker during the day. Think I might do a mommy stalker thing and drive by the school today. What? I have 2 other kids at that school?! Thanks for the reminder! Ah yes, I remember...these are the emotions I have felt for each of them for like the first month of their kindergarden days...then someone taught me the definition of FREEDOM.  Hmmm...well, for now, maybe I can bribe them with french fries to come say hello to me through the fence...

Have fun at school my Little Bear. I am off to nurture my Kaycee now.
She is ALL MINE over the next 3 years...that is...of course...until friends and teachers and school busses get in the way!!
Awww....look at her say, "CHHEEEEESE!!"
Oh, and for some more "D" posts...head on over to Jenny's page at
She hosts a letter a week called Alphebet Thursday...a little thing to spark writing topics.

Awww, them is some cute kids you got there. And why oh why do they have to grow up so fast. Not that fact that they are growing up but I think it should take a good 10 years to reach the age of 5. LOL.
And that cheeser at the end, gotta love a good cheese smile. She's adorable. You are one blessed lady!!

Amanda said...

Your kids are just precious! It's always so hard when they go off to school,and start growing up and wanting an identity separate from Mommy. One minute they're snuggling on your lap, the next minute they're in middle school, and you turn around for just a second, and they've gotten married!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Ahhh..he's about the cutest thing I've ever seen!

Sweet D post!

Mary said...

Crystal Gale can really sing about those brown...I mean blue eyes, and that Kindergarten Boy will never ever loose his love for Mommy! I bet he sings your praises to his Teacher and Friends!...Darling D Post!

mle said...

Oh! aren't those just the cutest little guys?! So much cuteness in one happy family : ) Soak it all in, lucky mama! That's how I'll always remember my little cuties but now they are in HS & college...

EG Wow said...

I remember sending my girls to school for the first time and the pain! It's such a bittersweet time! Sweet because you want them to grow up and be successful and bitter because you want them to stay too young to go to school.

What cute kids! Darling little ones to light up your days! I really did enjoy your post. That Crystal Gayle could sing that song! Thanks for sharing the memories as well as your family. Anne

Judie said...

I know he broke your heart, but you know, you'll get over it and fast!!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

You have the cutest kids. I don't look forward to JDaniel starting preschool next year. I love being his number one gal.

My name is PJ. said...

It's so hard, but just wait until they're teenagers....they tend to break your heart more regularly then.

La said...

Such a bittersweet post. Thanks for sharing. It brought back memories for me. La

Theresa said...

Darling post! You have a gift for writing:)

Sue said...

Cute kids, that's for sure!

And yes, he will definitely want his mommy again. Probably when he's sick or hurt or cranky as can be.

That's how it goes, right?


Cheryl D. said...

What a cutie! They do grow awfully fast, but it's great that he's enjoying school so much!

Brenda said...

What sweet faces and that last little girlie sure could melt your heart.

Jenny said...

Jimi, oh say it isn't so. Don't let little Bear be so big yet!

It is just flying by. Wasn't it just yesterday we were doing your 'surprise' long distance baby shower!?!

This was a wonderful stop for Alphabe-Thursday's letter "D". I'm glad to see you back here!

Thanks for a great link.

They are all so adorable!
