So tomorrow is the big day!! Little man starts school!!! Yes, I know it is only Pre K. However, our Pre K is located at our elementary school, so he is officially starting "Big School". He is excited about it, but I can also tell he is having some anxiety as well. His behavior this week at home and day care have been less than we would typically expect. I have been tolerant of it though, because he is about to going through some big changes for a little boy. He's coping. I'm trying to cope too!!
Why me? Lots of reasons!! Seeing your child grow up is both exciting and sad. I am so proud of the kid he is becoming, but miss so much the baby that he was. Little man has been blessed to have been part of a wonderful daycare and he made terrific friends. It may be hard to believe, but these 5 year olds have strong friendships with one another. Many of them have been together almost every day since they were a year old. They have bonds!! Sadly, they are not all going to the same schools. And if they are, they are not in the same class. Of course, we can get together for play dates and such, but thinking about Little Man walking into his classroom tomorrow without the shining faces of his best little friends breaks my heart. On the other hand, I look so forward to watching new friendship flourish and grow!! I am excited to watch him develop, grow, and learn in the coming school years......I just hope they go by slower alot slower than the last 5 years!
"Teachers make great thieves"...ever heard that quote? It is a very true! Most of our great ideas are "stolen" from someone else. Not all ideas on this blog are mine. I try to give credit where credit is due. However, if you find that an idea should have been given credit but wasn't, please let me know.
