Life at 1572: My Big Boy

My Big Boy

My Dearest Jack,

Today you are off to start a new adventure, you are a kindergartner.  This Momma has mixed emotions about this.  It is very hard for me to believe you are old enough to start school.  I think in my mind you are still my two year old precious little boy.  You are still so precious, but you are not so little anymore.  You are excited to start school, and your enthusiasm eases my mind.  I will miss you very much while you are gone.  It can be hard to explain, and it might seem silly, but I have taken care of you 24 hours a day for over 5 years.  You and I have spent little time apart, and you are truly a Momma's boy.  I'm finding it hard to let you go for 7 hours of the day.  

I worry.  I worry about the influence other kids will have on you.  I worry some of your sweet innocence will go away.  I worry that you might not be ready for such a big change.  You have expressed that you would rather go to half day rather than all day kindergarten.  I am pretty sure I am worrying for nothing.  

I am also very excited for you.  I can't wait to hear all about your new friends you are going to make.  I am sure you will have five new ones within the first hour.  You are my social butterfly.  I can't wait to see all of the new things you learn about this year.  I know you are going to amaze me with your abilities.  It will be fun to watch your love of books blossom and grow.  

You are going to do so amazingly well.  I am eager to see what this new school year brings for the both of us.  I will be impatiently waiting for you to step off that school bus to tell me all about your day.  

I love you will all of my heart.
