It happened. We blinked and he now goes to kindergarten.
I really wasn’t prepared for the freight train of feelings that hit me square in the heart as we drove away.
Overwhelming happiness for all the new things that he is about to learn and the friends he will make, but some fear and sadness for all those inevitable moments through childhood where he will get crushed and he has to learn how to work through the emotions without his mum or dad to guide him/hug him/tell him it’s ok.
He took in a bucket of ice to show all his soon to be friends and teachers. It really was the perfect ice-breaker.
Spread those wings and fly my baby.
