Now my “baby” is four. Next year, all will be in school. It’s exciting, and they love growing up, learning new things, taking on new responsibilities and privileges. But as someone who’s been home full time with her children for nearly seven years (for about 12 months interspersed I worked when my oldest was a baby) it is hard to see my role changing. Before it was care and feeding and playing; now it’s disciplining, organizing, and feeding, and feeding and feeding. I’m not sure how well I’ve prepared myself for the changes.
