Oh, you guys...

I'm struggling. Really, truly, having a hard time with my baby going to kindergarten.

I knew it was coming soon, I knew it was going to be difficult, but tonight, when I walked in the door from work and saw her Kindergarten stuff from Open House?

Well, the tears started. And the tightness in my heart is breaking me. At this moment, I'm sort of wishing I was one of those moms that looks forward to school starting. One that gets excited about kids going off to school and eager for changes like this.

But I'm not.

And I'm struggling.

You'll probably hear a lot from me over the next couple of weeks about this subject...cuz I'm just not ready. 

I just can't believe that my Baby Girl is starting school.

That my nest in one step closer to being empty. That my first baby is a senior and I'm taking his senior pictures tomorrow.

Where is the time going??????

Ugh. Please pass the tissues.


  1. I'm tearing up for you!!! I did ok with C. starting Kindergarten last year (probably because I knew in a short 6 weeks I'd have a new baby). But when Baby L. goes??? All bets are off. If we were neighbors, I'd totally buy you a bulk pack of Kleenex.

  2. It is a soulful moment. At least it will be you crying and not your baby. It's tough ordering a child to stay. I know a homeschooling mom of seven because she couldn't face the leaving them at school. I guess her kids will not have to worry about choosing whose folks to spend thanksgiving with when they get married. Their big choice will be which set of parents they live with,

  3. 100% with you on these sentiments! My entire summer was overshadowed by the thoughts of my baby starting Kindergarten, and to add salt to the wound, my daughter started MIDDLE school this year! Clearly we weren't thinking when we had our kid's 4 years and 9 months apart!!
    (I've read your newer posts and found that the first day went well for all of you! Great to hear it!)


I love comments! And, I welcome your thoughts that aren't in agreement with long as they are respectful!
