First Day of Kindergarten

Today was our sons first day of kindergarten. Yes, I took that photo at 8am this morning. Future Bam is at school as I am writing this. As we said our goodbyes this morning in his classroom, future Bam was happy, eager, and excited. I hope this is how he comes home-happy, eager, and excited to return for another day and many years to come.

Luckily no tears were shed as we parted but as I looked at him for the last time before I closed the classroom door, I could feel myself getting emotional. It didn’t help any when I looked over at Hot Daddy and I could see that he was feeling it too.

It’s hard to let go of your children. I keep wondering if I have told my son all he needs to know and if I have prepared him enough to go it alone. I would be lying if I didn’t say that today was heartbreaking yet also freeing for the both of us. He needs to go out in the world and learn. I need to really focus on my goals and business and by sending him along to school rather than homeschooling I’m able to do this.

It sure is quiet around here though. With only our 3 year old at home it is a whole lot different since you’d never know he was even here. He is the lone player.

I also kept telling myself that people and the world are inherently good and that I really should not worry. Am I kidding myself?

4 hours down, 3 hours to go until this BIG first is over :)
