Children Growing up

A major milestone for any parent. First day of school for their child!
I've just had mine start a few weeks ago, and its a life changer. From waking up early in the morning (I own up to pressing the snooze button on a daily basis and hence the reason for being late to office) to getting the child to do their homework.

But contrary to my expectations of "miserable school days", I'm actually loving it! Nothing beats seeing a child take up on learning and be excited about it. The only unfortunate taint to all this is the rat race that we set for ourselves. I need to keep reminding myself that I will NOT put a "parent of honor child" sticker on my car or push the child to "excel" in sports that I like rather than what he/she likes. Or so I will try!
