the year ahead

In a little over a week my little baby girl is turning four. How that is possible I have no idea. It seems like she only just got here and yet she's been here forever. I keep thinking about this coming year and I wonder what it will be like. Whenever I think I've got my Little MyPie figured out she goes and changes the rules on me.

This coming September she'll be starting school, something that used to worry me. Then I wasn't so worried, but yeah I'm pretty sure I'm worried about it again. I see her continue to struggle through new experiences and it worries me. On the other hand most of these struggles occur when I'm with her, she could very likely do just fine on her own without Mommy there to paste herself to. I have said this many times, but I am so thankful for the kindergarten teacher at our school. She is beyond fabulous and I know she'll manage with my quirky little girl just fine. Intellectually I think she's more than ready to go. She's a smart little cookie who's picked up lots from her big sister. If nothing else it will be an interesting ride.

At the age of 4 they can handle kindergarden. She'll do fine, I'm sure. You've still got 9 months to adjust :p
