I am fresh at this blogging thing so bare with me….There’s been a thought on my mind lately. After becoming a mom, everyone told me to “enjoy my boys while they are young.” What no one told me is just how fast the first 5 years would fly by. I’m already getting emotional writing this thinking about a new phase of life we are about to embark upon. We have made it through 5 of the best years of my life with my oldest son. He will start school this fall. I have been so blessed to have been able to stay at home with him since the day he was born. In fact, my very last day of going to a job was the day my water broke at work with him! Ha! I will never ever regret that time I had at home with him just being carefree and on no set schedule accept a nap schedule in the beginning. My sister called me the “nap natzi.”
I’m so excited for this new time in our life called “school,” but honestly I am an emotional wreck at the same time. Selfishly I don’t want to be away from him 7 hours a day. I love this little boy more than words can describe and am so honored God chose me as his mommy. I am slowly trying to gear myself up for that first day of school. Though I will probably be a basket case and embarrass my husband, I know he is going to thrive in school! He is a very smart little boy and we know God has great plans for him! Also, on a brighter note, this will be special time that I will now have with my 3 year old all by himself. I have never had that with just him and am really looking forward to it.
Can anyone else relate to sending your first one to school?! Any tips? I could use them to help prepare my emotional self!!
