Of course Mom is more scared.My mom tells of how my brother started kindergarten (at age 4, and no one went to pre-school in those days, so it truly was his 1st school) and he wouldn't let her even walk him up to the school door.She cried. He didn't.
I will try to keep it together. Sort of. Maybe.
I dropped mine off today, Jack and my husband were fine, I was fighting back the tears and fears the whole time. I have been on the toilet alot the past couple of days, yep those nerves have gotten the best of me.
I'm with you. I'm super with you.
And... Crying. Thanks for that. Usually I don't cry until after my second cup of coffee.
It's a rough week for that.
Good luck this week. Love the pic of the three siblings. :)
Thanks! Yes, the siblings have the bed thing all worked out.
Ugh! I know what this is like! George started full-day kindergarten last year and my blubbery sobbing tears took me by surprise. So speaking from experience - I can say for certain: 1) Just go ahead and cry it all out. You will feel so much better after. 2) You will get used to the (fabulous) school-day hours/time to yourself pretty fast! 3) He will always be your baby. Even when he's 30.*It was great to see Jeff this weekend! Wish you had been there too!
Thanks for the tips! Whether I cry or not, I have decided that the first day of school, I will spend some time getting a mani-pedi. (That could be number 1-1/2)
It's a big rite of passage for the both of you for sure. I long for the day to be taking my little ones to their first day of school ever because that would mean I don't have a 12 and 9 year old. Waaaaaaah! They're getting too big!
First day of preschool coming up soon for us. I haven't even allowed myself to think about the feelings I have inside. Im glad for you that he's not scared. That's reassuring to know.
Holding my breath!
When I picked up my daughter after the first day of kindergarten she looked at me very seriously and said, "So tomorrow do I do first grade?" Which made me realize that she was ready for almost anything. Hope the first day goes really well. And a HUGE thank you for supporting my film. I am eternally grateful.
I hope Bob will be so intrepid!I am happy I was able to help in some small way - I would wish you luck, but you don't need it, the film looks fantastic. xo
Good luck to both of you. Well, really just you since he seems to be taking it all in stride.
Yeah. I'm working on me. xo
Oh, the first day. It's kind of heartbreaking.[And exhilarating.]
Yes! That. Those.
Now we will get to enjoy his wonderful adventures in school. Can't wait :)
Thanks, Judie. Looking forward to what this year holds...
You already know when the first day of school is? You're doing GREAT!Signed, Miserable Failure of a Mother
