I cried… Of course I cried.😭😭😭 Did I really think today would go by and I wouldn’t shed a tear? The build up has been steady and today it all came to a head. I still have no idea how we got to this point? How is it that Lennox is 2 1/2 years old and just had his first day of preschool?
The morning started off smoothly and then I started writing on his first day of preschool sign. Lawdy Lawdy! I added a picture of when Lennox started walking and I completely lost it. Cue waterfall… I’m so happy my husband was home with me today so I could just melt into his arms and cry, otherwise I probably would’ve sat on the ground in a puddle of tears.
Once we got to school and were surrounded by all of Lennox’s new friends and fellow parents, I felt so much better. Paint, sandbox, water table with the coolest water creatures, singing, dancing, trains, dress up, you name it! These kids had a blast! 🎯 I did too. 😉
I’m so grateful there is this transition period where we are able to slowly help Lennox get used to this big step while helping ourselves transition too! I know this is so good for all of us. I know how much Lennox will love being in school- it was even more apparent to me today. And I know getting some time back for myself, to rediscover myself is so incredibly important. (For all of us, even you! You, reading this.) I truly believe that if as parents we are not content and happy in our souls, it will be challenging to completely give of ourselves to our children. And of course I want to give Lennox the world…
So here is my commitment to myself for all of you to hear (more pressure on me 😃) I am going to start running again, going to yoga and really challenging myself to meditate. Yep, you heard me! Meditate! It’s so incredibly hard for me but that’s a whole other story. Anyway, tangent, here’s to all you amazing mommies and daddies out there who have come before us and all of you who will experience these beautiful milestones after. Good luck and God speed!
