My boy is going off to school tomorrow. Going off to Kindergarten! He’ll be in school all day long, five days a week. It’s somewhat hard to wrap my head around this. I am very excited for him because he is more than ready and is so excited himself that he tells everyone he meets he is going to Kindergarten.
Okay, I have to admit I have secretly looked forward to this day for awhile. Just the thought of having all this time at home by myself to get to work on the things I’ve wanted to work on over the past six years but just didn’t have enough time is enough to make me giddy. But now that it is actually here it doesn’t seem so exciting and it doesn’t make me nearly as giddy as I thought it would! I know I will get used to it and I will enjoy the extra time to spend on me, the house and my business. Yes, I know it’s a good thing and I know he will be great in school. It’s just a big step for all of us and he is my only child so there are so many emotions at play here.
We took a walk up to the school last night to get some school pictures because frankly I’m a little nervous about getting pictures on the first day because I’m not sure I’ll be able to see through the tears. Yes, I’m a sap and it doesn’t make much to make me cry. I’m just hoping I reserve the “ugly cry” for when I walk through our front door and spare other parents from having to see that because…. it ain’t pretty!
He was in a wonderful mood last night and we had a great time exploring the ground of his new school.
