New month. New theme. New challenges.

My kids, 2 and 4, are going back to school on the 6th. Needless to say, I am a little nervous and unsure of how exactly this is going to pan out. I know that I won’t know until they get there, but I’m just uncertain about so many things.

I know that it will be great for them to see their teachers and especially their friends. But, I don’t know what the effect of the new way of school will have on them. And, I won’t know until we are there.

I have learned (and honestly am still learning) of what it means to let go. To let go of almost everything, because everything is out of my control and can change at a heartbeat. A part of me LOVES the unpredictability of it all, and a part of me (especially the mom heart that wants to protect my kids as best as I can) hates it. Because, I honestly don’t know what exactly to prepare them for…

For now, I’m realising the importance of unconditional love. To teach them to voice their emotions, as much as they can, and to let them live in and through the rest of it. It’s a learning curve for all of us.

As long as we are present, and really there for each other, the foundation is solid and we allow those around us to live and breathe through the uncertainties that engulf them.
