Those of you who don't know me well might be surprised to learn that I am pretty emotional and sentimental. I think part of that sentimentality is what causes me to have such difficulty letting go of stuff, but that is a story for another time.
This time I am having a little difficulty letting go of this sweet little thing. You see, this one is going off to kindergarten tomorrow. I know she is a bit nervous but she is hiding it pretty well. I am sure there will be tears tomorrow, on both of our part. I will be good and hide mine until I am out of her eye sight but my heart will be aching in between feeling so proud of her. Its so weird to think of my baby, my only child who I SWEAR was just a BABY a few months ago, going off to school every day.
The upside at least is that she will be in a nurturing environment, a school we love with a teacher she adores. There are only FIVE kids in her class, talk about your one on one attention! The down side is that she is the only girl. I hope the other little boys are kind and do not exclude her. I am a bit worried about how she will do and develop with no other girls in her class.
I'm getting a little teary eyed just writing this, so wish me luck when we start the school routine tomorrow!!!
