Kindergarten: A Mother's Guide to Letting Go

As my first child starts kindergarten, I feel like we are stepping onto a runaway train. These five years have flown by and they seem to go by faster as time goes on. In some way, kindergarten feels like the beginning of the end. His entire world is going to begin to expand exponentially beyond the little world I have created for him, where I choose where and with whom he spends his time. He will have a whole world apart from me, and there are times when I am not ok with that. I have considered homeschooling but concluded it would not work for our family. I simply have to deal with the fact that he is growing up and kindergarten is just the beginning. I have decided to try and share in the excitement, remember that I do want him to grow up eventually and take the time to enjoy the ride.
