First Day of Kindergarten
My son started kindergarten today and after a complete melt down by yours truly last week, today came and went with no over-the-top sentimentality. He was ready for this and I’m probably more ready than I wanted to believe. He’s in an amazing school surrounded by people dedicated to educational excellence and character development, and he has a great group of friends. What more could I ask for?
He will continue to thrive and we’ll all learn to accept this milestone with grace and eagerness and remember to savor as many moments as possible; time simply slips thorough our fingers. It’s that passage of time that I was having the hardest time accepting, not the idea that my wonderful son is starting a new stage of his life adventure. Today I feel more at peace with his growth and the role I play. I still want to stop the clock, but I’m making peace with the reality that I can’t. However quickly that clock ticks and chimes, I want to help him become the very best person he can be, and to fulfill every ounce of potential he has.
