I was fine last week, yesterday. I’m a pro, afterall, having just a year ago done the whole Kindergarten thing. Over at Babble, I even wrote a step by step guide on how to survive sending your baby to Kindergarten. Easy peasy, no biggie, ain’t no thang.
But I was wrong. She is the baby of the family and sending her off to be an elementary school to become an independent little girl, left a teeny tiny hole in my heart. She didn’t see me cry as she waved, skipping and smiling in line behind her teacher. I’ve spent the whole day with a lump in my throat, thinking about her being in Kindergarten. Kindergarten!
When I finally get to pick her up, I can’t wait to hear about all of her Kindergarten adventures, like eating in the cafeteria, making new friends, and going out for recess.
There she was YESTERDAY. How did I send her to Kindergarten today?
