Today my littlest started school.
My constant companion over the past years, my buddy, my go-to coffee date.
My lovable son.
It's a very bittersweet feeling. Sending him out into the great big world. Letting someone else be with him all day long. Wondering what he's up to. Hoping he's okay.
I think those thoughts are always stronger with the baby of the family.
But - I am so excited for him. He can grow and flourish, and begin something new.
And he gets to do what his brother has been doing for years now - and that's pretty enthralling for a 4.5 year old!
Yes, I admit - I am also excited for a little more quiet time.
(And to end my career as a short-order cook for a very demanding customer... ha!)
I'll miss you, O. But have fun, little man - the world is ready for you!
