|Sydney's first day|
|Looks just like the classrooms I remember|
While I know that can't happen, this is what I think I had to mourn. I will do everything I can to help guide her through this, to be there for her, to let her fall when she needs to, but support her in getting up and doing it again. I know the pain that is to come and it hurts me already.
Wow, this parenting thing is sure hard. Jason and I always say that no one told us how hard it would be because they knew we wouldn't do it if we did know. But, you know what, it is another lesson in life. In letting go, in loving beyond yourself, in guiding a wonderful, fabulous human being who is part of you to be a superstar. In reality, we love these girls so much it hurts us, which is why this new phase is so hard.
But, like all the other things we have gotten through, we will get through this, too. We will enjoy it, celebrate it and definitely survive it.
