KinderCamp 201312:58 PM
The Bub is starting Kindergarten this year. He has KinderCamp this week. I am so excited for him, but at the same time a little sad because it feels like an era is ending. He has been my constant companion and the most entertaining and outgoing sidekick for the past five years. So it's a little hard to let him go.
He also has a severe allergy to nuts. I have been the gatekeeper in protecting him and keeping him safe, but now I have to hand over the key and allow someone else to stand guard. I see more than ever the truth of the statement, "It takes a village to raise a child." I am happy to say, though, I feel a lot of confidence in his school and teachers. They seem to be very on top of managing kids with food allergies. I was able to request a nut free classroom and he will sit at the nut free table at school. (Ugh... I don't want him to be separated, but safety first.) I am learning that part of raising our children is learning to slowly let them go.
I am excited about the changes. Moms have been doing this for ages, right? Can't wait to see what this school year brings!
