Earlier this summer I was over at the Kansas City Moms Blog talking about my joy at the end of an era…and now school is starting! I can’t believe it!
Look, I get it. Time is scary. Watching our children grow up and eventually grow away from us is one of the most difficult things we go through as mothers. Every day they become more independent, and for us, that can be a bit terrifying. I’m sure one day I will look back and miss these days. But today is not that day!
Today my kid is so excited to move on to kindergarten! He is ready to be at the local elementary school with all the big kids he’s looked up to for ages. He’s ready to not be the preschooler anymore, and instead be part of the crowd. He’s ready to be challenged and learn new things. In short… he’s just ready!
And as his mama, I’m ready, too!
You can read more over at the Kansas City Moms Blog. And wish me luck next week when my little guy is actually starting kindergarten! Will I end up an emotional mess? I guess we will just have to wait and see…
