Going back...

So it appears that I am going back to work.  By work I mean an office job, where I am paid a decent amount for the hours that fall between 8 am and 5 pm, give or take.  For the past 
year-ish I have been watching a little boy who is two months older than Elijah during the day.  
The extra income allowed me to be able to stay home, and eat on a regular basis, but it is stopping in 3 short weeks.  His parents are wanting him in a more structured pre-school type setting starting when he turns 18 months.  He will be so exactly 3 weeks from today.   I am excited though.  A second, full income will make things way more comfortable around here, and on top of that I am excited about joining the real world again.  
It was really hard to take at first though.  I mean, I have watched this kid for most of his life. Since he was 4-months old.  I watched him learn to sit up, to crawl, to walk.  I taught him what a doggy says, and how to sign 'thank you'.  And more than just being about me, he and Elijah are like brothers.  They play so well together.  I almost think that they are slow to talk because they have their own language, much like twins do.  Don't get me wrong, they have also learned to hit, and shove and bite on each other, but I think that has made them all the more like brothers.  I have threatened his parents that I know where they live if we do not stay in contact with each other, and let the boys get together often to play.  They feel the same way.
Our little family is going to miss having our Thae-Thae-Shaney-Ney on a daily basis, that is for sure.
