Lil' Kay will be going to kindergarten in a couple of weeks, and it's killing me! I work full-time outside the home, so he goes to daycare every day. I really thought that this fact would immunize me against the weepy "oh my baby is going to kindergarten" sydrome, but I was wrong. Turns out, it isn't about missing your little one when they no longer spend the day with you, it's all about them growing up. Going to school is such a huge milestone! I keep saying that it's just a downhill slide to high school graduation after this.
Friday is the day that I will go and enroll him. I'm not looking forward to it. In fact, I'm totally scared! The first day of school is sneaking up on me, and I feel totally unprepared! He's going to be riding a bus! What if he doesn't get on the bus? What if there are mean kids? What if he's the mean kid? What if he doesn't make friends? What if he can't sit still? What if he won't follow directions? Seriously. I'm going crazy! I should be a total quivering mass of nerves by the time the first week of school has come and gone.
