song of the day: 'i'm not gonna cry' by corey smith
you know when i was having my crisis and talking about all these milestones coming up in my life and how i was feeling overwhelmed and strange and whatnot? well, the first milestone is today: my sweet boy starts kindergarten. it's kind of a big deal. this is a new stage of his life and one i can't be totally a part of. this is the beginning of letting go. and for me, i'm watching not only my first, but my only child grow up and be independent. it's both exciting and terrifying. i mean, truly, my heart is full to overflowing seeing him get ready for this next step in his life. but i also know that i'm slowly being replaced. yeah, it's a pretty big deal. i know a lot of you can't relate, but you may be in this situation in the future. and i'm just gonna warn you now, it's one of the sweetest moments.
he looks pretty excited, no?
