Thinking and Growing
We are coming upon a significant milestone in the Arteche household. Isabel is about to start preschool.
Our hearts as Mothers-- as human beings-- grow and stretch along with our kids. And I am totally growing right now.
I think every time we hit a big change in life, in which some milestone is passed-- I get nostalgic or for lack of a better term, grieve for the what beautiful stage we've just accomplished. And a little timid of things that are coming. And she is my first child, we are learning side by side, some of these new steps.
I want them to grow up to be independent people, who know who they are and to appreciate the journeys they will inevitably take in life. I also want them to not be timid of the next step.
She is so strong and is so excited about going to preschool, I can’t wait for her to learn new things, meet new friends and have her world expanded a little bit. Plus, I can handle 5 hours a week.
