Note to self..
You really need to do it! You can only put it off for so long! You know he is more than ready for it so why are you dragging it out as long as you can?
There are no more excuses you have used them all now:
“I can’t just yet as we are moving back to New Zealand”
“Wait a week or two until he is settled”
“After Christmas, after all we have a return 10 hour drive to deal with”
“Once the school holidays are over when there are no distractions”
No it has to be done, after all his brother was done much younger than he is now and it went okay.
So what is stopping you? The mess, the staying in, the running round after him, checking up on him, what?
“So what is stopping me?”
It’s kissing goodbye to his babyhood and recognising the little person he is becoming. It’s like watching him ride off on his bike without me for the first time, watching him jump into the pool without me to catch him and loving it. It’s realising that soon he will no longer need me as much as he does now. It’s another little step towards his independence. Its all this and much, much more....
Because he is no longer our little baby!
Of course I have many more excuses in my head why to put it off for another month or so. Perhaps wait until we move at the end of this month?
But no, I know it needs to be done. So this is the weekend to do it....
