So, tomorrow begins a new journey, and it’s almost as nerve wrecking as the first day I sent Kynnedy to daycare when she was six weeks old.
This school year is definitely not like others. The jitters are still there; but this time, there’s a level of anxiety and question about just how successful this year will be. Mostly everyone I know is going back to school virtually, Kynnedy included. She appears to be just as excited as if I was taking her to her school physically, but I can still see a little disappointment in her expression knowing she won’t be able actually physically interact with her friends at school.
There’s so many changes and adjustments that have to be made this year; and as a parent I can’t help but be fearful that I will be as supportive as I would need to be for this school year while also being a full time working parent as well. I can appreciate all the teachers and school personnel and how they’ve made these adjustments to their classroom environments so that children can continue to receive the best experience possible, despite the circumstances. I’m just hoping that I will be able to be as present as I need to be and as I can to ensure my child is also present, because a six- year old sitting in front of a computer for several hours a day can be challenging.
All in all, I hope everyone has a successful and productive school year and I hope that our children all can have a productive school year as well.
