Back to School – Proof that “Our Babies Don’t Keep”

Posted September 7th, 2010

Nothing marks the passage of time more than the first day back to school.  Our kids are another year older, and another year closer to growing up and flying out of the nest!  I can feel the anxiety in the air, mixed emotions — excited to go back, and yet dreading to see summers’ end.
Remember these words from Fred Rogers Transitions are almost always signs of growth, but they can bring feelings of loss.  To get somewhere new, we may have to leave somewhere else behind.  Give your kids an extra hug and kiss, send them off to school and congratulate yourself for being a great parent!
