Last Week with Matthew

We walked down to the park this evening and were sitting on a set of benches talking.  I excitedly told Benjamin that this was going to be his last week in daycare and that he would be a big kindergärtner in a week.  He was quiet for a moment and then put his face against Andrea’s leg and started sobbing.  When we asked him what was wrong he said he was going to be so sad to not be in school with Matthew.  We told him he would still see him everyday and that he would still go with me to drop Matthew off and pick him up.  He, for-longingly, told me that he liked seeing and playing with Matthew on the playground.

Big changes coming up for the little guys…It breaks my heart.

  1. He was really, honest to goodness, upset – soooo sad. “I am going to miss seeing Matthew every day at school and at the playground.” I think he has grown up in being a big brother and it’s become part of who he is. My heart is broken too…
