How is it possible?

This baby of mine will start kindergarten tomorrow!

Is it just me, or do other parents feel like this is the biggest change since giving birth?

She's so grown up, but still a baby.  She's sweet and sassy.  Smart and strong.  Timid and reckless.

Why must she grow up so fast?  It tears at my heart and yet, it is so exciting to see her bloom, change and grow.

She is amazing and, at times, exhausting.  She is the most exhausting joy I have ever loved.

I'm so glad I get to be her mom and continue on this adventure with her.

I know she will do great.  I know I will constantly think of her throughout the day.  I am so grateful the first two days of school are short and sweet.  Next Monday (when she begins to go all day, everyday) that's when I think know I will cry.


  1. Oh my gosh she looks so grown up in the last picture that I almost cried! So yeah, good luck with the not crying :) She is becoming such a beautiful little (ok, big) girl.

  2. It's hard! SO very hard! My daughter started kindergarten last year and it felt like my heart was ripped from my body. I wrote about it here:

    It got easier as I saw how much she loved it though.
