I wonder what you’re doing right now,
and if everyone is treating you kind,
I hope there is a special person,
a nice friend that you can find.
I wonder if the teacher knows,
just how special you are to me.
And if the brightness of your heart
is something she can see.
I wonder if you are thinking about me.
And if you need a hug.
I already miss the sound of your voice
and how you give my leg a tug.
I wonder if you could possibly understand,
how hard it is for me to let you grow.
On this day know that my heart breaks,
for this is the first step in letting my baby go.
Though this is the second year that my son will go to school, I still feel emotional every time I read back to school poem because it is true that it is hard for me to let him grow. I know that he’s no longer a baby and he doesn’t want me to call him baby anymore. He always says “Mommy, not baby, just Ethan”.
He’s growing too fast and I know I can’t stop it so I just have to cherish the days, hours and minutes that he is with me. This is one of the reasons why I don’t regret to be a full time mom. Last year, I waited for 2 hours and 30 minutes and now he will be in school for 3 hours. Honestly, I’m not looking forward on his elementary days because I know I will miss him more.
