It seems slightly comical to me that even though my daughter is only 4 years old and starting JK this week, I feel like it is such a big step in growing up. As the summer started, I thought, no big deal, she’s ready, she’s got this. As we made our way into August, my heart really changed tune! So in expressing my thoughts on the moment she leaves me for many years of school, I would like to share a poem. Maybe some moms out there can relate to my feeling too💖
Time For School, My Baby Girl
It seems like just yesterday,
I looked down at my little girl,
Just a baby sleeping peacefully,
Without a care in the world.
It’s only been four years,
But so much has changed,
I almost can’t remember,
How my life’s been rearranged.
So bright and animated,
With eyes blue like the sky,
A smile that captures my heart,
Her little giggle is a piece of art.
With a memory like an elephant,
She really keeps me on my toes,
An old soul is inside of her,
There is so much she already knows.
A gift of light to my heart,
She’s like a thunderbolt in the sky,
Our souls have always been together,
And I have never wondered why.
My baby girl is going to school,
The first big separation,
I’ve shed tears of sadness,
But for her it’s another equation.
She’s bright and ready to shine,
So inquisitive and smart,
I can’t wait to see her blossom,
And life without me is about to start!
