I registered my 5 year for Kindergarten tonight. A much different experience with the fourth child then it was with the first. I can't say that I am sad or heavy hearted even. He is ready. He can do this - he needs to do this. I do not doubt he will be beyond fine, in fact he will excel.
The problem is that I have to grow up now. I have been out of the job force for 9 years. Not much to fill the gaps on my resume even. A committee here, volunteering there, but nothing worth much. You can not put down - real life experience far better then your 'book learnin' you require. Nope. Not going to work.
So, now what?
