It’s Friday! The week has been jam packed with beginning of the school year activities and my daughters first day of Kindergarten. An exciting milestone and the start of many new adventures! My son had his first day of Early Preschool this week too.
Having small children makes you recognize the big hurdles they must go over everyday as they try new things, learn new things and meet new people. Everything is new for them and yet we expect them to set off into the world bravely and with a smile. It is easy to forget the feeling of being scared or nervous that often comes with trying something new. I am proud of my kids for accepting their new adventures wholeheartedly and even though they might feel “nervous about meeting new friends” or “scared to leave mommy.” We need to let them know that its ok to be fearful or anxious because everyone feels that way sometimes. They are brave and are rewarded greatly by trying anyways. This attitude is a great reminder for me and everyone getting ready to try something new.
I am very proud of my kids.
