The Day I Have Dreaded

is here...

Tomorrow while my son is at his weekly speech therapy session I will register him for the 2010-2011 school year. He will enter Kindergarten.

Having fun!
All together now.... "Awwwwww!"


I have often thought of how hard his first day of kindergarten might be for me and registering him is the first big step heading in that direction. He has been in daycare/preschool since he was two but Kindergarten is "real school."

Best friends, bullies, homework, good teachers, bad teachers, teasing and fun. I believe it is the start of the really hard years in parenting. When the difficult times will come. When, as a parent, you would love to trip little Johnny as he walks down the hall for teasing your son but you know it just wouldn't be acceptable. I just have to hope we have taught h

It's stressful. It's exciting. It means my little man is growing up.  The oddest thing is remembering when I started Kindergarten and my mom walking me to class. Now, it's my turn.

I just signed my older daughter up for 4K this morning and her younger sister up for 2 mornings a week of preschool. On the one hand I'm very excited for a few hours to myself every week... but on the other I'm pretty sure I'm going to be crying when the time comes to drop them both off! How did my babies get to be so big?!

Thanks so much for joining us for Friendly Friday! Have a great weekend!

I understand ! It is hard to see them grow and go through life. As long as you give him emotional support and love. He will be ok :)
You are adorable and i love your blog and family !
Would love if you drop by and follow me too :)

That's such a sweet post. We parents do worry don't we! But really, we have no need to half the time. Our little cherubs are happy in school, make friends and learn. It's such a good place for them to be. He'll most likely come on in leaps and bounds and you'll be wondering why you were worrying at all.

Found you via Friday blog hop.
