Today is Adam’s first day of Kindergarten and I thought I had it all together until I saw him wave his last goodbye and that is precisely when I lost it. I am so excited for him to begin this new chapter of his life, but also terrified that he is officially out of the bubble of safety that we have so lovingly created for him, and worried about all the hypothetical scenarios he may face in the ‘real world’. I know this is only the beginning of my ‘letting go’ as a mom, but does it really have to be this hard???
We shot these pics over the weekend (before Adam was a Kindergartener… *sniff*), I was itching to try out my new glitter smoking slipper – which will no doubt carry me through Fall. I’m officially a flats girl especially on weekends or anytime I’m with Adam because he keeps me running around constantly. I kept my outfit cool for the crazy heat we’ve been having with some lightweight joggers and a halter sweater tank. I love how the glitter texture makes the whole look much more interesting – like wearing jewelry on your feet.
Today was supposed to be a very productive day, seeing that now I have a full day to myself – but I think I will just take a few hours to cry and replay the videos I made this morning of Adam getting ready for his first day, then walking out with his cute backpack on, then saying goodbye with that huge smile. Sigh…wish me luck guys!
