Zak is about to start Kindergarten on Monday. I almost walked out the the parent meeting last night I was so overwhelmed. I'm not ready!! I'm not ready for a kindergartner, I'm not ready to be a homeschooling mom, I'm not ready for this stage of life!! I just couldn't stop looking at Zak's hands today, they are getting so big I had to write about it
Little boy blue
3 steps forward
and you never looked back
First word, second word can't stop talking
endless running replaced your walking
Those trips to the park
catching my little "slide rocket"
going home with daisies
overflowing each pocket
I sang you to sleep
when you were little
held your hand as you grew
I taught you to speak
taught you dress
taught you to tie your shoe
You stand before me a little man
looking as big as a kindergartner can
so brave, so afraid, so excited and yet
You reach for my hand as we take the next step
(and you know you aren't ready to be a teacher when you can't spell kindergartner)
