I never realized how much I would love being a mom, until I actually became a mom. This season of life is so different now that Malia is in Kindergarten. Balancing a new schedule has its challenges, but the rewards by far outweigh those challenges. I was excited to volunteer for Malia’s fall party at school. The theme was Dia De Los Muertos. The kids decorated skulls, listened to a story about Dia De Los Muertos, ate snacks, and paraded through the school in their costumes. It was a fun morning.
My little girl is growing up, and has changed so much in the past few months since starting school. She brings me such joy as I watch her learn with excitement. I savor these moments when she is little, because I know she is growing up fast. I never though kindergarten would come as quickly as it has, but now we are here, and in full swing with school.
It’s crazy when I think about kindergarten, and then I realize that Malia will remember her kindergarten days too. I wonder what she will think of, and what memories will stick with her? I wonder which memories she will savor in her mind, and which friends she will think of when she remembers kindergarten.
It’s not just my kids that are growing, but I’m growing and changing with them. I hope that as we all grow together, my kids will always know the love I have for them. Hopefully we will share these good memories together and look back on them with smiles and laughter.
