August 12, 2015 “EMPTY NEST”
Holy crap I’m bad at journaling, aren’t I. Anyway.
Parker started preschool today.
I know it’s not a big deal — it’s just two days a week, and we’ve been looking for a school for a while — but I’ve cried twice about it. Last night & this morning. I just don’t want him to feel scared or alone… Like at nap time or if a kid is mean to him. I know these worries will be there my whole life (and his), just in various (bigger) forms.
So I’m trusting God, even at the preschool level, b/c it starts somewhere. Giving Parker some little tiny wings & a gentle (soft) push from his cozy nest… He probably won’t feel a thing, but I will.
This is good.
P.S. In my morning/mourning haze, I hyphenated “preschool” while writing his little sign. I will look back on this photo for years and only see that dang hyphen.
