Not mine

Standard

I have been thinking a lot lately about how my daughter isn’t really mine anymore.  Sure she used to go to daycare and spent a good portion of her day with her providers but it was still within a confined little world.  School however is so much different.  There are people who know her and that she knows that I don’t.  This is a struggle.  My five year old bundle of energy, creativity, and goofiness is her own person and a part of this world separate from me.  Other people meet her and form opinions of her without my influence or awareness.  I can only hope that I am teaching her to be kind, thoughtful, and a good friend.
