For me...today will be one of those 'firsts'. A pretty big milestone I'd say.
My first born is starting his very first day at school. To be honest, I think I've been in denial for the last few months. Sure I've bought the books, the uniforms, the shoes, the lunch boxes but only LAST NIGHT (I know...like, seriously?) I realised that this wide ride we call life is moving so dam fast.
My baby...is not my baby anymore *choke*. He's now a little person, with his own thoughts and his own character (and lots of it) and he's most certainly ready....ready for more challenges, for more responsibility and ready to dive head first into this exciting new chapter. Yeah, it's hard for us mums and dads not to get emotional, I mean one very beautiful (*chaotic*) chapter is now closing. But really, through the eyes of my son, the excitement of what's next totally outweighs any sadness I may have felt.
