Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on June 29, 2013

Yesterday was the last day of school for my Diva girl. Most children are excited by the prospect of all that summer fun awaiting them. My daughter, however, cried herself to sleep last night.


The reason is because she will not be returning to the same school in September. She was accepted into the French Immersion program at a different school and the impact of that truly hit her yesterday as she said goodbye to her teachers and friends. She was a mass of tears before we got through the school doors and cried all the way home. She listed off every reason as to why it was so unfair for her to have to leave her friends and begged me to ‘sign her off’ of this program.


Although I know that this will be a good experience for her and that the school is really not that far away and that a lot of her school friends live in our area, so she can see them when she wants to, it was still a hard thing to see her so broken-hearted. But I realized that this would be one of many decisions that I would have to make for my kids that they probably wouldn’t like, appreciate or understand until they were older.

It was weird, because I felt like a bad parent for doing something that I really believe will be a good thing for her in the long run.


Motherhood…piece of cake.
