2007 9 months old, headed to daycare while Mommy was still teaching...
(he was at full time daycare until Justin was born in 2009 when I quit teaching)
2009-First Day of MDO Tuesday-Thursday
2010-First Day of Preschool Tuesday-Thursday(3 year olds)
2011-First Day of Preschool, Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday(4 year olds)
I think I've cried for every "first" day of school so far!
I was a complete mess dropping him off at daycare each day while I went to work. I did better for Mother's Day Out and Preschool HOWEVER, I'm not sure how I'm going to keep it together for the first day of kindergarten.
It's only a few weeks away...we have our kindergarten close up (meeting with the kindergarten teachers) this week!
I'm a nervous wreck.
Jake keeps laughing saying he's going to wave goodbye to me the first day and his Mommy will be sobbing in the car rider line...OMG, he's SO right!!!
He's SO excited!
He's ready to see all of his buddies from preschool-thankfully there's quite a few attending the same school, so they'll all know each other!
This is "real", five days a week, full day of kindergarten!!!!
and while I'm so happy that my boy is growing up into such a handsome, polite, mature young boy...I can't help but think, where has my baby boy gone??
Let's hope I can keep it together that first day of school...and if not, hopefully there will be other kindergarten Mommies sobbing right along with me :-(
