Moving on ...

Day 8 - It is my son's birthday tomorrow and he's asked me to make cupcakes for his Year 6 class.  I'm happy to do this as I have every year for primary school and as I did for my daughter before him.  At a point somewhere in the cooking process it dawned on me that after 16 years of preparing cakes for classmates this was my final time.  Part of me is sad that yet another segment of my life and my son's childhood has come to an end, along with the bedtime story reading and playing with toys - yet another part of me rejoices in this wonderful process called life, of the adventure and excitement that awaits him and the lessons he has yet to learn.
