To Olivia on your first day of school

Here we are just hours away before you start Kindergarten and the new chapter of our lives begins. You woke up so early full of nerves and anxious knowing you are starting school. You have worries that you do not know anyone in your class and you have no friends there. We have gone through a bit of an emotional time together as we have both prepared for this day.

I know today as I take you to your class and you disappear behind a closed door and I have to walk away I will most likely be overcome with emotion. It’s the end of an era and the start of a new one. It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago I had held you in my arms for the first time and I fell madly in love with you, but it has been almost 5 and a half years now and I know from experience that the next 5 will seem to go even quicker.

IMG_1592

There is a lot I will miss about it being home with you all day everyday. I will miss having you chat at me from the backseat as we run about doing errands. I will miss having you sit at the end of the dining room table while I work away and have you tell me your stories. I will miss our time running off to the park for an hour when the sun comes out from behind the clouds.

I do however take comfort knowing that when the school day ends you will be back in your seat after I pick you up from school and I will once again take comfort in hearing your little voice tell me about your adventures at school. It is hard as your dad to watch you grow and move on doing different things in life and spending a little less time each day with you, but each night I know that I will still get to tuck you in to your bed and tell you “I love you” and “I am proud to be your dad”! I hope you have a wonderful first day and don’t worry you will make a lot of new friends.

Love Dad

A new chapter starts tomorrow!

A new chapter starts tomorrow for me as Olivia starts school and she will no longer send most of the day with me. I honestly am feeling quite sad and overwhelmed as I have been with her since the day she was born. It’s more the realization that my baby girl is growing up and no longer is she the tiny little baby I held in my arms when she was born, or the toddler that sat at the table with me while I worked and she ate her breakfast and lunch and talked my ear off.

The memories I have of the two of us spending so much time together feel like ghosts in the room today and I am not sure how to deal with the feelings I am having. On one hand I am happy that she is starting and a whole new world will open up to her, but on that same note I will be missing her like crazy and I am not quite ready for my little girl to grow up quite yet and it makes me want to cry a bit.

IMG_9069

I know that there is no stopping her growing and learning and becoming a young lady. I know that everyday she becomes a little more independent. I know everyday she wants to grow up just a little more. It is so hard to lay these last 5 and a half years to rest as wonderful memories and move on to the next chapter.  I’ve raised her and been her constant everyday companion and she has been mine.

IMG_8501

The time has come to let her walk the path of life and start seeing the bigger picture. To walk the path of life and start finding herself and her way slowly but surely. I have to let go just a little bit more and let her to find herself  and be there for her when she needs me and listen to her when she talks. Although she is growing up and becoming her own person I will always be her dad and will always be looking out for her and when she needs to be free and run I will let her and when she needs someone to carry her because sh is tired and worn out she will never be to heavy for me to carry on my back.
