Our lives pretty much revolve around our kids school calendars. At the present time, our life is all about endings.
It’s a weird concept to explain to a kid. You enter school, soccer, lessons, friendships and more in the fall. You transition through fun, frustration, success and failure, and then just when you’re comfortable, it’s time to end. As adults, we know it will all start again. But maybe we’ve forgotten how hard it can be to say good bye.
My youngest son just finished up pre-school and said he’ll miss it. I found myself agreeing it is sad to say goodbye. But I had a harder time explaining how your feelings shift from feeling sad to gradually but surely feeling Ok to eventually even feeling excited about trying something new.
All I know for sure is that even the greatest groups eventually come to an end.
