Foreshadowing

My friend Courtney got Jackson this adorable backpack for his birthday (which matched the theme of the party to a tee!) He had been waiting for me to take the tags off (it had been hanging on his door for about a week) and I finally had time to sit with him and put some of his favorite things in it for us to take along during our errand running. His pack included the following:

-his laptop (I work, Momma)
-big boy pants
-wipes (I clean, Momma)
-Thomas
-2 books (to weed)
-Leo (his wyion)
-GoldFish (my 'nack)

Obviously, it was a little heavy on his 26.4 lb frame, but he was super excited to wear it. But when he walked to the door, I stopped dead in my tracks...like one of those things you see in the movies. I grabbed my camera from the table and shot away. I'm telling you, it was like he was in slow motion, walking away from me. I was sad. It hit me so hard that it's not going to be long before he is walking to that door to go off to Kindergarten....
