We are both very excited about this stage but its also bittersweet. I will really miss my Noodle in the long morning traffic. It’s also nice knowing exactly how the day went and not needing to ask. It’s nice that I knew all his friends personally.
However in a sign that he is growing up he actually said to me this week that he doesn’t need to tell me everything about his new school. I know he is happy because he sits right down and starts playing with his classmates. He also has a good teacher.
It’s time for this mom to let go and allow her little boy to grow into the big boy she knows he can be. I’ve been making a point of calling him a big boy lately and have started to notice other ways he is maturing.
- He is able to fasten his own straps.
- He dresses himself.
- He is able to swim without his “backpack” but chooses most of the time to still have it.
- He builds and creates many different houses, cars, tracks etc.
- More bathroom independence (although unfortunately the bathroom humour hasn’t stopped)
- He created a whole Paw Patrol story which I wrote out in a book we had from Wimpy.
There are so many ways my boy is growing up. I’m very proud of him and this big step we are taking.
