The last day

So today is the last day of my baby boy being 4. I don’t know what is so magical about turning 5, especially since my son won’t start school until the fall. But it feels like the end of an era. He will no longer be a baby, a toddler or a preschooler. He is school age. This birthday will bring the end of him being just mine. This is the end of having our little home be the center of his universe. After this birthday, he will have to go out into the world. He will go to school, he will meet lots of people, he will learn the values that someone else thinks is important. He will become a citizen of our city, our state– the world!

I still have time, not much but time. School doesn’t start until the fall. But this birthday marks the beginning of the end. What will (or have) you done to prepare for your little one turning 5?
