Just over four years ago, I gave birth to my first child. Recently, I toured yet another school that could be his elementary school. As I walked around the campus, I was a little bit overwhelmed. So much so that I didn’t take pictures. That’s saying a lot. As a blogger, I take pictures of EVERYTHING!
It began to get real. He is growing up. Whether I’m ready or not, my baby is about to be a big kid. Ugh. How in the world did this happen so quickly. Why won’t time slow down just a bit. Before I know it, his sister will be headed off to pre-school and that’s pretty much the beginning of the end of the “baby stage”.
I already can’t call my son my baby without being corrected… by him!
For myself and a couple of other moms there, it was surreal to be going through this process. It’s stressful to make sure we’re finding a school that’s a great fit. We really want a school that is hits lots of things on our list. The one I saw yesterday is right up there. We’ll see what happens.
As far as my son is concerned, he couldn’t be more excited about moving to the next stage. He’s so excited about it all. I am too! I can’t promise that I won’t cry on his first day though. Not making any promises there.
How am I supposed to get ready for this? Le sigh.
