To new adventures, new friends, not knowing that this day will change his life forever. As I type this I have many tears coming from my eyes. Our little grandson is spreading his wings....is he ready for the cold, cruel world that awaits him?
Yes, I do realize that we all have experienced this BIG day in our lives, and yes, we all survived, but for some reason I have more of a grandmother's need to protect this little one....protect his innocence, protect his kind nature from the reality that we all know, kids are cruel. Will he be hurt emotionally....of course; will he be laughed at at some point...of course. It's the circle of life coming around.
This grandma isn't ready for it though.
Grandma loves you.
