Off into the Big Wide World

Tomorrow Maia, my baby girl, starts kindergarten. It is with mixed emotions that I send her off into the big wide world. She is saying she doesn't want to go, but says it with half a smile. She already knows half of her kindergarten class in one way or another and her best buddy, Ryan, from Preschool is in her class. That will help with the transition. He looks out for her. It is too cute. Regardless of what she is feeling, I am not sure what I am feeling at this moment. Sad a little. A bittersweet moment to say the least, awaits me in the early hours of Monday Aug. 25. I will have to hold it together for her sake. If she see's me falter, I am doomed. I will have to be strong and save the waterworks for after she boards the bus with her big brother. He will be in 1st grade! I just can't believe that the baby girl I brought into this house is now going off to school. She was just a newborn when we moved here. Time flys, and no matter how we try, you just can't hold onto it. All you new moms out there, savor every moment of your little ones life. They grow up to fast and before you know it, you too will be sending them off into the world. I'll post an update after all is said and done. Wish me luck!
