Dear Dragon – End of Grade 1

Dear Dragon,

Congratulations! Yesterday you finished grade one.

Everything is going to be different now. You’re going to in-person school for grade two and you are going to love it. You’ll make friends and do all kinds of fun stuff.

I’m going to miss you. It’ll be the first time since I took parental leave for Adrien that I don’t see you almost every day. The world has kinda sucked the past 4 years (arguably more), but I’m thankful that I was able to spend so much extra time with you.

I know things change and I know you’re getting to that age where parents aren’t cool, but I hope as you grow older you’ll still have time to play videogames with me, cook/bake, and want me to read you stories.

You’ve learned so much the past three years of home/virtual school and that’s all because of your amazing teachers and your hard work. I know we pushed you and I know it wasn’t always easy. You still have issues with emotional regulation (but let’s be honest, so do I), you still have to learn that it’s okay to be wrong (I’m doing me best to show by example on this one), and you have a long time ahead to learn those things and so many more.

I know you’re excited to go to school, learn new things, and grow up. Just maybe don’t be in too much of a hurry just yet.

I love you little Dragon,


Sharing is awesome!
