But I do know that what I saw in that boy today was the most breathtaking thing I have witnessed as a mother so far, besides cradling him in my arms shortly after the crazy ride we both took together the day he was born. I saw my baby boy so proud to start this new journey. I saw his excitement for learning, trying something new, discovery, exploring and independence. He was ready to take on the world today without hesitation and without needing me by his side, but knowing that I would be there to pick him up, ready to hear all about it. And I'm okay with his independence, I mean, he is not mine to possess and selfishly keep for myself. This is the beginning of his own journey which comes from something much greater than me and for him to graciously accept this new journey
at such a young age with wide open arms made me so proud to be his mother. It was the most beautiful thing, my friends, to see my son so happy today at Busy Bee Preschool.
He really is the most wonderful thing. So what was there to cry about?
