The Push.


"You never know when one act, or one word
of encouragement can change a life forever."
~ Zig Ziglar

I have been so weepy lately. Maybe it's pregnancy hormones, maybe it's lack of sleep, maybe it's the fact that work starts next week and I am completely stressed already. Or maybe it is because my little girl is going to preschool this Fall. She actually starts next Tuesday. She'll go half days for four days a week. We bought her backpack (Princess of course), we got her a lunch box to bring her snack in each day (again Princess of course), and some other supplies for school.
SCHOOL! I really can't believe how fast time goes. I remember the day I found out I was pregnant with her. Just like it was yesterday. Then the day she was born, was such an amazing day. She truly was a miracle to us. All our children are, but there was something about Charlotte.
These days I find myself watching t.v. and back to school commercials come on and I start crying. Man, I am a sap. How do you give her the push she needs to go, when all you want to do is hold on?
My little girl, is not so little anymore. She wants to go to school. And I know she is ready, but I think I might need some kind of support group or something.

I recently got this link in an email and it got me thinking about school, my kids growing up, and how it can be hard to see, but wonderful at the same time. If you have a few minutes click the link and see what I mean. It is worth it. Or atleast I think so.

So September 1st, think of my little Big girl heading to preschool...and send some support my way, I think I might need it.

You can count on loving thoughts coming your way on Sept. 1. As for the support group, it's made of mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, friends....hang on to them all. I certainly do! Love you!

I know that she will love school and it will help her to learn and grow in so many exciting ways. Just today a favorite K teacher said "you can always tell the K students, they have the biggest smiles and their parents are standing behind them with the biggest tears."

Like so many other parts of parenting this is hard because you care. You are a great mom who wants only the best for your girl and that will happen. Good luck!

I'm a sap too! I am sitting here with tears in my eyes thinking of my little princess turning 1 and how fast this past year has gone by. Unbelievable!!
You know I will be thinking of Miss Charlotte tomorrow. I know she will do great. I will also be thinking of you! So glad we have each other to lean on. Love you!!
