My youngest child is starting kindergarten and, having gone through it once before, I know it will be tear-filled. Like lots of other Moms, I get extremely sentimental when my kids experience major milestones. But this isn't just their milestone, it's mine, too. For the first time, both of my kids will be in school full-time. This means better self-care (exercise is at the top of my list) and more time to explore some of my passions - art, photography, cooking.
Yet, despite this new freedom, a part of me wants time to stand still.
