I’m feeling the crisp fall air on my cheeks (promptly followed by streaming hot tears) each and every morning that I walk back up my driveway after waving my oldest off to school. I can hardly wrap my head around how quickly we got to this point. How, HOW are my little babies already in Grade 1 and Preschool? Many of us moms have been faced with the uncertainty (and sadness…OH the sadness!!!) of sending our children either to school for the first time or to school for a full day versus a half day and it is hard. It’s hard, it’s heartbreaking, it feels raw and I couldn’t be more thankful that the weekend is here to heal the bits of my heart that are torn from me everytime I see the school bus drive down the dirt road with one of my babies in the front seat.
So thankful for the weekend. I get back to the noise and chaos that is my normal. Back to seeing my boys pretending to be cowboys while stomping their pint sized cowboy boots as loud as they can on the back porch.
I’m also thankful for the cuddly snack breaks on the couch spent watching Disney Junior. Disney Junior Canada has another exciting month planned that I’d love to share with you all including the chance to win a Private Red Carpet trip. More on that below! First up:
Brand New Episodes of Doc McStuffins: The Doc is in, with brand new episodes, premiering Sundays at 11am ET, starting September 15th. Whether it’s a case of loose stitching,low batteries or the need for a little confidence boost, Doc McStuffins, along with her stuffie sidekicks, always delivers the perfect remedy. My son sleeps with our 5 year old chihuahua every night and gives him the once over to make sure he’s feeling good before bed. Checks his ears, his nose, his paws…poor Sammy dog gets a full body checkup at bedtime every night thanks to Doc McStuffins!
Brand New Episodes of Justin Time: Justin and his imaginary pals, Olive and Squidgy, are back and on the hunt for more global adventures in the second season of the Canadian original series Justin Time premiering Sundays at 8:30am ET, starting September 8th. The trio encounters new faces and new places this fall as they set out on quests to learn and discover a world they are destined to explore.
