I have been waiting for this day for a long time. The moment when all my boys would be in school from 830 - 330 and I would have freedom. Uninterrupted time for me and my business. The end to inconveniently timed, mid-day pickups.
But now that it is almost here, I feel sad. Huge heartache. As I was processing the paperwork with our elementary school, I was reminded that time does fly by and here we are at yet another milestone. Another reminder that we are all are getting older.
My little Akshay turns 5 in June. He still needs me and lets me hug and hold him in my arms. But I realize I only have a couple years left of this babyish stage. And even though I have been dreaming of the day when all three of my boys would be in school full time, I wish I could freeze time for just a little bit. Akshay is my last one at home. My baby entering into kindergarten will be a big change for all of us.
How did you feel when your youngest left the nest?
