First day................

The twinge lessons with each child.  I remember Ezekiel's first day, waking early, picking the clothes, marking everything with his name including him.  I actually put tape on his collar with his name and bus number.  What is it with the first that makes it so important, so memorable, so very beautiful.  First time holding hands, first kiss, first home, first child, first loss, first fight.............  etched forever in memory.  Today was a first for Leif, yet I was so much more at rest.  The school is different, there is no busing, but the child is different as well.  I don't worry about him, he will be just fine.  This child is something special, loving, energetic, charismatic, well spoken, magnetic, athletic, and cute.  I don't know how I was gifted with such a child, but I will cherish him.  I don't worry about him, he will do well in life, but this summer I realized that if I am not careful I will loose him.  He is so good at everything, it is easy to not worry, focus, stress about him.  But he is still a child, my child, and I will grip him with an iron grasp.  Kiss him each night, tell him how much he is loved, and spend extravagant time with him.  Sit with him, read with him, play with him, snuggle with him.  Because even though I don't worry about him, I cherish every moment I get to spend with him.  Happy first day of school Leif.
