My new (favourite) morning routine

The first days after the start of the school year blew the winds of change through our house. I wrote about it here. As the weeks have gone by, I’ve started changing my habits too. Before, most days I would walk Philippe to school in our neighbourhood. Now, he leaves the house with his dad and sister, heading for the high school.

I like watching them leave together. They’re always smiling. Emma often makes hand signals – she’s trying to explain something to me. I don’t always understand, but I still think it’s cute. Philippe is proud to sit up front in the car, with his dad, his eyes shining.

As for me, I accompany them to the front door, where…

I watch them put their bags in the trunk.

I make sure they aren’t too hot or too cold.

I remind them of this, that, and the other.

I watch them leave.

I wave.

I close the door and go back into the house, my heart filled with love.

Yup, I’m that mom.

And you know what? I like it.

This fall was definitely a season of change in my life. I’m starting to realize that it’s not as bad as I thought.

I’ve (finally) understood that it’s much easier to accept change when you have an open mind, when you go with the flow and decide to play the hand that you’ve been dealt.

One step at a time, one change at a time, one day at a time.
