First grade jitters

September 5, 2012

You’re such a big
first-grader now! I exclaimed.
She shook her head.
Not yet.
Tonight I’m still just
a scared little kindergartener.

And isn’t that how it is?
We step into the next version of our selves
before we feel remotely qualified.
But we step anyway.

    love it…and both of you. Once again, wisdom from the babe’s mouth (well, not really–and don’t tell her I called her that!)
