I can't believe I'm writing this! Where has the time gone!? When they're babies you don't even think about them going to school and then one day. it's suddenly here. I have such mixed feelings about it. Is it too soon? Really, she doesn't HAVE to go to preschool. But she's so smart, she's ready, even if I'm not. I know she will have the best time and it will be so good for her, but selfishly, I'm still a little sad that my best bud isn't going to be around all day.
Of course, I couldn't let her in on the fact that I was torn up inside about her going to school. Instead of asking, "are you nervous?" I asked, "are you so excited!? You're going to have the best time ever!'. Ahhh my heart.
As I was putting Blake to bed tonight, I looked at her differently, snuggled a little longer, knowing that this time would fly by just as it did with Logan. Motherhood is such a wonderful rollercoaster of emotions.
How do you guys get through sending your kids off to school?
