My baby is going to school...

...well, pre-school! But, it stills counts as school to me cause she has a teacher and will be gone Tuesdays and Thursday for 3 HOURS! That's a long time! Seriously...part of me wants to change me mind and keep her home for another year but, the rest of me knows she's ready and will grow in a million ways this year! I need to focus on growing with her and sharing these new experiences with her. So hard when I want to hold on to her and freeze time. I watch "Special Agent OSO" with Adriah and every show has a problem to solve and "3 Special Steps" to solve's my 3 Special Steps to starting school.

Step 1. Let go and let her grow a little.

Step 2. Focus on the time I still have her at home...make the most of it!

Step 3. Take a ton of pictures! I'll freeze time with pictures and always remember this week and how I feel because of them.

I know this will all be routine in a couple of weeks but, for now, it's real.
