Educational wise, he's ready and has been for a while. He's an extremely bright kid so on one hand I'm excited for him to go and start learning new things. On the other hand, the "mom" side of my brain is worried for him. Will he easily make new friends? Will he get picked on? I have so many thoughts floating through my head already and I know it will only get more intense over the next 9 months. I’m trying not to psych myself out just yet (since I have plenty of time for that) but now that the process has begun I’m already dreading that day in September.

It brings tears to my eyes just thinking of it….kindergarten. How did this sneak up on me so fast?!?! Wasn’t he just crawling and sleeping in a crib?? School applications are available starting today and I have no idea how I’m going to fill it out without it getting tear stained. I know he has to grow up at some point but I’m just not ready to have my baby get on a bus and head off to school. You’d think that it would be easier considering he’s been in full time daycare (and now preschool) since he was 17 months old but somehow the K word is hitting me differently than I expected. It’s the new teachers, new surroundings and a school of 625 kids. Yes, our district is THAT big – and this school is just pre-K and K!! Oh and of course the bus ride to/from school.
