School Mum

Tomorrow I will have two children in school.

As I expected, I am troubled.
Nervous even.
But it's a different feeling this time round.

I am not worried that she won't cope without me.
I am worried that she will.
I am worried that she will make friends and learn more and grow up and slip out of my grasp.

She is a free spirit kind of girl, and I think about how I will show her love as she needs me less? 
I suppose I will stumble and fail and try to listen to her heart and learn some things myself. 
Perhaps school is education for all of us.

(I remember the words I whispered to myself two years ago...)
Love is an evolving thing.
And so I smile at the future.
