schoolI've finally come to terms that I'm going to be THAT parent at my son's first day of kindergarten. I'll be the mom with tissues in hand and ugly crying face in action. I really don't want to be so I'm willing to prepare for the first day of kinder now.
I don't know if I'm sadder about not having him home or the fact that he won't be needing me much anymore. I never thought I'd be maternal like this. I almost feel needy and I sound so dramatic, but I'm being honest here I am not ready for him to start school. Can you blame my attachment though? I've been with my kids since birth only leaving their sides for a few days- a week at the most.
I've been taking baby steps to prepare. I recently found out he's excited about making friends and playing on the playground. He's a bit shy and so I can't help but wonder what school will be like for him. I'm happy he is growing and will become independent but still a part of me wishes I could keep him small forever.
