•Be still my heart•
I️ was cleaning out a junk drawer and I️ found this! When my oldest was two, he started nursery school. He (and I️) had a wee bit of separation anxiety😳. One of the ways I️ helped him transition from home to school was with this little homemade talisman. It’s a photo strip that I️ laminated and tied a string to. Each day, we would tie it to his belt loop and tuck it in his pocket. Whenever he felt sad at school, he would pull it out and look at it, and the string kept him from losing it. Today, I️ took a photo of his big, ten-year-old hand holding it.
You know what? He is still as sweet as he was then. And he still holds my hand and loves a good cuddle. I️ ❤️ being a #boymom. .
