We have been preparing Joshua for this day for months. Who am I kidding- Susie and I have been preparing ourselves for months. The first day of Kindergarten. Gulp. I think I’m ready. I mean, I think Josh is ready.
When we got to the school Josh burst out of the car and literally ran to the front doors. He can’t wait to go back to the Kindergarden room he visited in the Spring. The room with the paints and crafts and toys and trains and the sweet kindergarten teacher with all those stickers. We finally caught up with him and steered him into the kindergarten area. He caught sight of his teacher, turned to Mommy and Daddy and said: “Go now.” Four years of sacrifice in raising this child and all we get is “go now” as we release him into the world. I guess that’s parenthood ;o)
