Savoring

Piano recital Monday, preschool carnival Tuesday, 2nd grade field trip Wednesday, preschool promotion today, kindergarten western program tomorrow and we’ll have made it through this crazy week! It’s a marathon as a parent, helping every kid with every thing, setting them up to succeed. And still, in moments like these, I always step back in amazement watching these smart, talented kids of mine grow up. They have so much goodness in them and sometimes I feel like I just need to get out of their way and let them shine. I sat at preschool promotion today and for the first time, had no smaller children I was trying to shush. My smallest child (who sat so stoic and reminded me of Forrest Gump the whole time 😂) was up there performing, reminding me I’m on the tail end of listening to four year olds shout zip-a-dee-do-da at the top of their lungs. They say most parents regret not enjoying the moments enough and, while I’m guilty of that plenty of the time, today was a day I savored. ❤️💔😭🤗 [“Not Boy, Not Man” 12x12, available at https://www.stephaniehock.com/solo-show]
