There comes a time in every mom’s life when she feels like her children are growing up too quickly. For most of us, it’s more than just one time; any milestone your tiny humans reach can tug a few of your heartstrings and leave you feeling a bit lost.

One of the toughest transition times can be when your little one starts to seem not so little. There you are, doing your best mothering for your toddler, kissing boo boos and singing songs and encouraging naps, and the next thing you know, it’s time for kindergarten. Your kid heads off, tiny backpack strapped on, colorful lunchbox swinging with each step, and you watch, holding onto her special blankie or well-loved teddy bear, as she leaves you behind.

It may feel like you have no purpose when your baby isn’t a baby anymore, but don’t despair. At the end of the day, you get your kids back, and you can greet them with hugs and kisses, a yummy snack, and plenty of time to spend together.

This is exactly what kids are supposed to do: they grow up and learn new skills and gain independence in small increments, but they will always need their mothers to be there for them, waiting in the wings like the unsung heroes they are.

So, if you find yourself on the edge of a life-changing developmental stage, take solace in the fact that even if you feel like you are all alone and a little obsolete, you aren’t; you are just doing your job of raising your children. It’s sometimes thankless, maybe a little bit lonely, and rewarding like no other thing you can ever do with your life.
