I went to register my baby for Kindergarten on Monday. I didn’t break down in the Registrar’s office or otherwise embarrass myself. But I can Not believe that she is finally old enough for school!
I swear I was at the hospital in labor with her yesterday! I’m not ready for big girl school. I am not ready for her to be gone 5 days a week. I’m not ready to have our wings clipped from traveling back to Alabama whenever we feel like it and I am SERIOUSLY not ready to give up Tuesdays and Thursdays in pajamas.
When she was 2 and 3 I couldn’t wait for this day. The idea of someone else dealing with her 8 hours a day was QUITE appealing. She spent a considerable amount of time in Time Out and in her room. But now I’ve been consistent, I’ve done all the hard work, she occasionally listens when I talk and follows instructions, and it’s already time for her to leave me- just when she is starting to really help around the house. It’s almost enough to make me want to home school. Almost…but not quite.
