Today I finally took the step and delivered the school registration form that has been sitting on my counter for 2 months .. I did it, I know I had to do it at some point so I took the step….. and it has left me full of emotions.
My youngest little chicklet and last baby is off to start Kindergarten in September, I know it is months away and she has to go but I'm not ready or am I? I find myself thinking 'what am I going to do with a empty house? ….who am I going to talk to all day? ….She is too little how is she going to manage? .. what if she gets overwhelmed and its all too much?
Then I flip the other way and shake my head as she is the 3rd child I have sent off on this amazing exciting new journey, I know she can handle it, being the 3rd sister she is so much more grown up then my oldest was at the age of 5. I know she will love school and be OK .. I think it is just me realizing my babies are growing up and there is no more for me… maybe I am just scared to start a new chapter in our lives … either way its coming and I need to cope and be excited for her and not show my own fear!
I have to laugh as I am "that mom" who does the happy dance the first day of school but this time is different .. its the last one to have a first day of school in our family.
I can do this … we both can do this ….come September
