Letters To Our Sons-February

Dear Pookah,

I toured your future Kindergarten class today.

I admit I teared up.

I always worry, of course, about finding a place that is a great fit for you. Somewhere that will harness that energy and curiosity and not stiffle you. Somewhere that will be firm but loving. Life home.

I watched all of the kids writing, and learning and being so grown up, and could picture you sitting in a seat doing the same.  I met your teacher and I’m happy to say, she seems to know how to handle big boys with your personality. I’m so excited to see you grow and flourish and learn in the fall. I can’t wait to see all that you are capable of.

But on the other hand, Kindergarten means you are growing up on me.  Your Daddy loves to remind me, and YOU like to remind me: I’m a big boy Mama!

Yes you are! But since you might be my last baby, it’s bittersweet to see you grow up and move out of this stage and on to the next adventure.

But hopefully, you won’t remember that you are supposed to be a big boy and still give me sweet kisses, random hugs and tell me you love me out of the blue and want to be my Valentine’s Day Date.


I don’t think I like this growing up thing.

How sweet. Just wait until the actual first day of school. If you almost cried seeing the classroom, you are really gonna have to hold it together then.

They grow up but my son sometimes still goes back to that childlike behavior. Last night he texted me and said he was scared because he was at a strangers house and he wanted to talk with me til he fell asleep. They are still big babies until they leave at 18 they will just grow into different elements as time goes by.

I teared up because I'm right there with you! Even though I homeschool, I can't believe how fast time is going. My baby girl is going to be 5! I just can't...
