"For all of us, becoming indigenous to a place means living as if your children's future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it." - Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
My little guy is growing up so fast. But this Mama held it together for the whole 4 hours he was out of my sight. I’m so glad he was excited about starting preschool. We’ve been talking about it for the past month especially the week prior. Last night it dawned on him that I would be leaving him and he said in a worried voice, “No Mama?” I reassured him that he would have fun time learning with Ms. Jenny. Plus I told him when I pick him up I’ll have a special treat waiting for him. I’m not above bribing or treat training my kid. He did it! He made it through his first day. I dropped him off easily (for him) lol. He said bye and started to explore his new environment. His teacher sent me a couple pictures which made me so happy. I went to pick him up and he shared how much he liked school and wants to go back. Now we’re home chilling on our beanbag.
