As the school year comes to a close, I am amazed that in a few days, I will officially have a first grader. I’ve been thinking about how nervous I was at the beginning of the year. How I wondered how he would handle all the structure, the work, the rules, making friends…. everything.
But it’s like when he learned to swing on his own. It didn’t happen over night, it was a gradual thing. One day he was asking for help, and the next day, he was pumping those legs all on his own soaring high into the sky.
Kindergarten has been the same way. I’ve watched in amazement as he’s learned to follow rules, learned how to calm himself down, learned to read and write and add and subtract. Things I wasn’t sure that he would pick up as quickly as he has.
Who knew that I would find so much joy in watching him become the person he is meant to be.
So this month, motherhood is amazing.
And that is good.
