Anyone else sad? Lol not sure how to deal with my only baby starting school! The longest we have been apart is 1 week. Now he will be gone for an entire 8 hours a day! He will be 6 in March, he's excited and nervous but mainly excited! Mommy is sad,nervous and anxious about leaving him with strangers lol. Any ideas how to calm my nerves about this new chapter in our lives? Am I the only one who's feeling like this? Most people are excited about their kids going to school but I'm really going to miss him :(

It's always nerve wrecking when they start kindergarten. I have one going to second grade this year and one starting kindergarten. She's always been my tiny baby girl so its hard thinking about her going. Just know that they have so much fun at school and they will be gaining so much from the experience of kindergarten. And of course they will be coming back home to the comfort of their mamas at the end of the day. Just be strong and enjoy watching het blossom at school. I cry the first day every year. *hugs*

Mine started yesterday. I was sad but it wasn't a huge deal. Probably because she's been in pre-k since 3.

My son starts Kindy on the 3rd, he is 4. Bittersweet, but I am looking forward to mommy-baby time. He is getting really bored at home.

My son is starting kindergarten in about 2 weeks. :) He is sooo excited. It's all he talks about. He was in daycare when he was a baby for about 6 months or so until I got pregnant with my middle baby, but that was a very long time ago. Since then it's been me and the boys for years. I know this is good for him and he is so ready, but I can't quite wrap my brain around the whole riding on the bus by himself issue or staying somewhere I have no control over. :)



I mean what if he gets lost or gets on the wrong bus? :D My husband also pushed for the whole day kindergarten vs the 2 hour a day class. I know it's good for him and that's what I keep telling myself. He's so bored at home now.

LOL I think that too until i realize that the baby is going to become a toddler. Another baby? Absolutely. Bring me a dozen. A toddler ... no thanks .. got enough already. :D

I have another year before my son is supposed to start. He is 4 now. I have homeschooled him for preschool, and he has always been with me. Seriously, other than the occasional times his father has had to watch him so I could work (never more than 8 hours, never more than a couple times a month) or go to school (a couple hours a couple times a week). I am so genuinely going to miss him, because I LOVE his company. It just makes it worse that we have talked about it and he very emphatically does NOT want to go to school, especially since he won't even be in the same school as his cousins.



It isn't really about him growing up...because I am okay with that, it is inevitable. It is about losing the time together that we both enjoy so much. I will mourn that, and I suspect he will, too. He learns SO WELL with me, too, and I have enjoyed teaching him so much, that we will miss that, too.
