Judah's First Day of Preschool: I was a mess, now I am not
Story time ends and that sweet boy walks in and sees me there, with his clean clothes and tears streaming down my cheeks. His face quickly went from happy to concerned and as he pointed to my tears, he said that he could "see my feelings".
I explained to him that I'm not sad but instead, I'm actually so proud and excited for him. I told him that it seems like it was only yesterday that he was a tiny baby that I carried around in my arms and now, he is so big (yet, still so small).
Most of us Moms cry. We cry over happy stuff, we cry over things that make our heart ache and we even cry over milestones that we are celebrating. I have 100% peace about our decision to send Judah to preschool. Does it mean that we will do public school later? Maybe or maybe not....that's up in the air. Even though my heart is filled with excitement for him and joy over this new season, I was a mess. It happens and I'd so much rather be in the moment and feel it than be numb and not feel these milestones in our lives.
Today my recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Pancakes is being shared over at "Or So She Says.....", the site that I contribute to monthly.
