As I inch closer to 40, I have come to realize something. I’m never ready for major life changes. There are many out there that probably thrive on chaos and zero structure in their life. Not me. I love getting comfortable, I enjoy my routine. It’s not that I don’t love to change things up a bit, or try something new. I’m a writer…I have to get out of my zone sometimes.
But my twins started kindergarten this last week and LET ME TELL YOU, it’s not easy. It’s never easy to adjust your entire life, but it’s even worse when the only two kids you’ve ever had…wander off in search of new experiences.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s fantastic. I hope they love school, make new friends and have a smile on their face every day when I get them off the bus. Doesn’t make letting them go any easier 😦
Maybe I can absorb some of the emotions to eventually use them in my writing, but at this point…I’m just trying to make it through the day without crying.
Any readers with kids will understand, life changes that involve them on their path is scary, exciting, thrilling and horrifying all at the same time.
