Yesterday was filled with the wonder and anticipation of hurricane Irene…there were some pretty magical views to be captured as I accompanied my friend to deliver cakes for a wedding on the island.
Some reality for today…my youngest really is going to kindergarten. This was literally painfully evident to us both as he received four vaccinations this morning. I realize that I am so not ready for this and I can’t really do too much about that. I can work on having a positive attitude towards it though which will hopefully in turn, encourage my son. He looked so little to me and scared at the Dr…so vulnerable. I do have to be realistic…it is not like I am putting a red cape on him and sending him into the woods to the wolves. At least I hope I’m not.
More ways I will cope:
I will form and maintain strong relationships with the school…teachers and staff.
I will continue to find ways to forge conversations with my son about how he is feeling about the upcoming change…
I will do my best to feel positive about his new adventure and assure him in that too…
I will volunteer and contribute as much as I can to the school because it is important.
I will allow myself to grieve…to cry.
I think for a while yet I will feel like this building in the fog…I can see a little but must trust and have faith that the foundation is unshakable.
