Yup, this is it. The 1st step to the next 13 years of her and our lives.
Today was orientation, she was excited and nervous. She was stirring and crazy to hop on the bus. Letting her go solo…made me feel like I shipped my baby off to outerspace all alone.
Anyone else feeling all kinds of stircrazy rollercoaster of emotiona and memories flooding in. Oh my gosh. My heart is so overwhelmed. How do people do this over and over, kid after kid. Does it ever really get easier?
We have all see the news, the tragedies, how do we become.comfortable sending our babies off to a place where we are not present. I pray often, ask Him to keep her safe at all times, this is about to explode to an imploration like no other.
What if, they dont treat her kind?
What if, she has a hard time making new friends?
What if, mid-day she misses her old school,teachers and friends?
What if, she loves it so much she doesnt turn back to say goodbye?
What if, she is so good, its her new love (id be ok with that but id miss my baby girl)
Where did time go, why did it go so goshdarned fast? Why arent we more emotionally ready if we knew this day would come? So many questions…
Time.will tell, all I know, is she is gearing and ready to face it with a huge excited smile, and ill hold her hand until shes ready to let go.
Good luck friends. This journey is taxing, but so rewarding in the end.
Here’s to an Awesome kindergarten year!
