Moving On Up

I dropped Bliss off in her daycare room for the last time this morning. As of next week, she becomes an official preschooler. I can’t decide if its easier or harder on the momma to have her birthday so close to the changing of school time. On the one hand, its nice to have some “growing up” markers close together. On the other hand, for this stage and this momma, its a lot of emotional “my baby’s getting so big so fast” kind of days.

Maybe its the daycare-to-preschool shift, or maybe its the sudden uptick in screaming tantrums that arrived with the third birthday, but there is a shifting sense of moving on in my life too. I’m intrigued by a few doors and windows that could bring  skills and hobbies from my past into my present. The ground is shifting under me in a way I can’t quite figure out, but it feels exciting. I might be moving on up – or simply getting more solid in my footing. I guess for now, I’m just moving right along.

Footloose and fancy free…
