I think that “last days” are hard. I hate saying goodbye to people especially if I don’t know if I’ll ever see them again. As an adult, it is emotionally hard for me to deal with, and I wonder how much last days hit my children, too. Do they feel it like I do or does the emotion of it all not register as much? As a parent, it is really hard to gauge, but as tomorrow is their last day of school for the year, I must remember to be sensitive to my kids.
This is a short blog today, because it is more of a question than a commentary…something that I really don’t know the answer to. Do you all think that children get as sentimental as grown ups do recognizing that they won’t be seeing certain friends again for a long time and most likely will not have all of their buddies in next year’s classes, as well? Feel free to chime in with your thoughts.
My song of the day is by Nickelback. “If Today Was the Last Day” was certainly not intended for the last day of school, but I think it can easily be related to it. Click HERE to go to Youtube to hear the song as I am preparing myself for a gamut of emotions in my house. I am ready for it all!
