All of a sudden, the house is quiet for hours at a time. I thought I was more than ready for you to start school, but I miss you. You are racing into the future, and all I can do is watch you go.
As I walked you to school for your second day, you looked up at me and said, “I love you Mama,” and then smiled that all encompassing smile that you have when you are completely happy. I just wanted to freeze that moment forever.
So here’s to the wonderful boy you are becoming. I love you, too.
