It's here. The day before the first day of kindergarten. How did we get here so fast??
Everyone keeps asking if I'm ready for this. How could I be? Nothing can prepare you for this. Not just the first day of school, but...parenthood. So I have my tissues, my sunglasses, and a little bit of chocolate lined up. That's my school survival kit.
If I just remember to breathe, I think I'll be alright.
The funny thing is, this kid...my baby boy... he's ready. He is so ready. Yes, the class of 2027 is already looking promising.
We can do this.
Tomorrow I'm going to watch a chunk of my heart walk into his classroom. I'll listen to his little sister say goodbye. She tells me all the time she is going to miss him while he's at school. I will too.
These are big changes.
I mean BIG.
But today I was reminded that my little guy won't be there alone. Sure, there will be a great teacher (she's awesome!), good classmates.... but he knows God is with him. I want to have ears and eyes in the classroom and know everything, but really God knows everything and He loves my boy more than I could ever imagine, and so I'll cling to these promises and just breathe and wait. My boy, he's in good hands, even when he can't hold mine.
Change. Yeah....we just had to use that word this week....
