She will be fine. Me on the other hand!

 As a mom, I have watched my little girl grow and change in so many ways.  I heard her first words and saw her take her first steps.  I remember the first time she road a bike and get knocked over by an ocean wave.  Each moment changed my life in a way I think only a mom can be changed.

But, as I sit here the night before her first day of kindergarten I think of how my life will be changed in away, she has never changed it before.

Gone are the days when she and I can wake up and snuggle on the couch watching Oswald until she is ready to have breakfast.

Gone are the days when everything has to stop because she just needs some mommy time.

Gone are the days of taking trips to the mall to play on the playground on a rainy day, just because we could.

From the first day of Kindergarten on, most of her day will be spent with someone else.

Someone else will have the joy of seeing her laughing and running with her friends.

Someone else gets to hold her hand when she is too shy to talk to a new friend.

Someone else will probably get to hear her read her first sentence.

She will need to look to someone other than her mom to help her tie her shoe or understand something new.

And someone else will be blessed in making memories with her, that as a mom, I want to be making with her.

Kindergarten is a big change.  As she will be adjusting to her new schedule and figuring out what is expected of her…I will be expected to do the same.  I have a feeling she will succeed at achieving her potential way before I will!
