I cried today. I have a friend that once said that I cry when my kids poop. My kids were really young at the time and it wasn’t true but all too often the emotions my kids stir up inside of me has to be released somehow. And to think I didn’t want kids, even once I got married I didn’t think I’d be having kids. I’m so glad I changed my mind.
Today, another wise friend told me that it’s all in the natural order of things… with the beginning of each school year we are being prepared for their big leap.
He was nervous, all day yesterday and this morning. While he was eating breakfast he said to me, “I’m so excited but not excited at the same time. Did that happen to you when you were a kid?” Oh, yes.
Even Stella sensed the shift.
The report on day 1 was a big smile and that’s all this mama needed. Fingers crossed it will be a great year.
