Today I had to let you go. Just a little. You see, today you started kindergarten. You are such a big boy! When I asked you if you were ready to go to school today, you smiled and laughed and clapped your hands. I know in your own way, you were trying to tell me "Come on Mom - it's not so bad! I love school!" Thank you for that. To tell you the truth, this whole kindergarten thing is pretty tough on your old mom. I'm trying to be brave like you taught me but I am missing you so much right now my heart hurts. I know you are okay but I can't help worrying about you and wondering what you are doing right now. I am also crying a lot - I promise to stop before I pick you up from school today! I am so proud of you and all the amazing things you have accomplished in the last 5 years. It seems just like yesterday you were the tiny baby we brought home to love and take care of. Now you are off to kindergarten and I can't turn back the clock no matter how much I want to. I want to thank you for all I've learned from you and for making our lives so amazing. Thank you for picking me as your mom. Even though I am not with you at school, I want you to know my spirit and my heart are right there beside you the whole way. I know you will do a great job. I love you Joey.
