Letting Go

Ian asked yesterday when I was taking him to school if I would just drop him off at the front door. I was not ready for that yet so I walked him to his hallway and let him walk the rest of the way by himself to his classroom. He did not even want me to watch him go to his classroom. He kept asking me to "just go". So, this morning I dropped him off at the front door. I think he was a little surprised that I let him go by himself. He acted so big and had a very serious look on his face. Once he was inside, I pulled over and while Chris and Lia sat in the car I went to check on him. I knew he would make it to his class just fine. He is ready. But, it is so hard to just drop your child off and assume that he will be OK for the next 7 hours! I know it will get easier. This is just one more step towards letting go I guess.

Yes...letting go is really hard. But, that is the only way your kiddos grow and become more responsible. Who said being a Mom was easy?!!!!
