Our little girl is going to school. I can hardly believe it yet in many ways I feel like she is so ready and deserves a little bit of normal in her life. I have so many fears about sending her, fears that many parents do not have and I'm sure find it hard to understand. Madison has grown up in a hospital. I remember when Madison was a little toddler -- only 15 months old, toddling around the halls not even reaching the counter of the nurses station. Now she is sitting at the desk paging staff over the intercom. I really pray that she can find her place in the real world. I know she can. She is a bright social little girl, but I still have so many fears. I fear that she will one day have to face that fact that our life in not normal. Right now she has no clue. I truly believe she thinks the way we live is how every little girl grows up -- what will happen when she sees there is another way?
Will she want out?
I can most likely guarantee that none of these thoughts ever probably enter her little four year old mind, but I can't help but wonder -- I am her mommie after all. Tonight is Madison's Pre-K orientation. It's a big change for Adam and I. It really pushes our little family to the next level -- having a child in school. Are we ready? I guess the real question is...
Is the school ready for my amazing little girl?
