Today is a milestone for our firstborn. Tonight we have Kindergarten Open House for our boy. Our firstborn.
When he was first born, I held him in my arms in the hospital and dreamed of all the milestones we would accomplish together. First steps, riding with no training wheels, first day of kindergarten, swimming a length of the pool, first kiss, prom, a wedding, grandbabies… so much to pack into a lifetime. Tonight we’ll hear about all the big things to come for his first year of ‘real’ school. The things he’ll learn. The teachers he’ll look up to. The activities he’ll be part of.
And I have no doubt I’ll be sitting with the other parents – tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat – as another milestone is checked off the list.
