My first born daughter, Mila is now three and a half years old. She’s starting preschool next week, and this milestone has me pretty emotional. For me, it’s a symbol that she’s becoming more independent, and therefore she will become just a little bit more aware of the world (and the good – and not so good things about it). I know, I know. For God’s sake Alex – it’s not like she’s starting college! Trust me…I realize that I’m probably more emotional than I need to be.
