Den Chronicles: Life is getting muddy

6 years ago

How many of you sent a child to high school this year? How was it for you? For me, it mimicked the first day of Kindergarten nine years ago but with many more complicated emotions than before. The process of letting go continues....

Here is an excerpt from my latest story:

 

“Trust me mom.”

He uses the statement frequently, sometimes within its correct context, and sometimes way to loose.

“Mom,” he exclaimed this morning. “Discovery is going to have snow later this week!”

“Seriously, Riley?”

“I’m not joking, mom. Trust me!”

In the midst of getting ready for his first day of high school, his mind is on snow. My mind is on trust.

YOU CAN READ THE REST HERE:

I would love to hear how YOU process the new stages of your child's life.

Thanks for stopping by!
Jen
