On Monday

On Monday Rose is going to kindergarten. She is not the first child to start school and will not be the last but for me and Tom having our first child start school is a big day.


I am excited to see what she will become, who will become her friends, and what about learning excites her the most. At at the same time I am terrified. What happens if no one wants to be her friend, what if learning is too hard, what if the school bullies target her. It is true when they say having a kid is like wearing your heart out side your chest.

I wish I could relive the past five years because on Monday it just won’t be the same with her gone.
