It was Open Day at Camerons school today.
So off I went and it hit me like a ton of bricks!!!!! My son is going to Grade 1 next year and I am not ready! I am not ready yet for him to be a school going child.
The principal today said she knows this is a huge milestone for parents! And I think its my biggest one so far. I dont get all weepy at their birthdays or when they do something cool but today I had tears!
This is BIG! Its like moving from being a mom of toddlers to a mom of a boy. A boy who, this time next year, will be reading and writing and learning that candles need oxygen to stay alight.
And I am not ready! I will be ready though. I have four months to get ready. Four months to let go of him a little bit.
This growing up thing is hard!
