The Proudest Mum On The Block.

My son started preschool yesterday.

In the car he asked me, "Mommy, are you going to stay with me?".

"No sweetie." I said. "I have some things to do, but I'll be right back to pick you up in a few hours."

He paused for a bit, thinking about this.

For a second I was afraid. Afraid of leaving him. Afraid of him not wanting to be left. Afraid my little boy is growing up too fast.

"I won't cry Mommy." He said, bravely.

I smiled proudly back at him. "Oh there's no need to cry honey. School is great! You're going to love it."

In the classroom, he indulged me with a kiss goodbye before running back to his new friends at the sand box.

My baby. My boy. Now a school kid.
