I have been an emotional wreck this week.Â I knew it was happening, but just didn’t want to face the reality!!Â My girls are growing up!!Â Madelyn is going to kindergarten this year and riding the bus to school.Â I think the bus is what is freaking me out.Â It is something that I have no control over.Â (I’m tearing up as I type about it…I’m being so silly!)Â I’m trying hard to be happy…because she sure it, but I am going to MISS her!!
The odd thing is she is only going for two and half hours (half day) and for the past three years she has gone to pre-school for four hours.Â Â I realize it is all a control thing.Â I want to be the one to drop her off!Â I want to make sure she is safely in her classroom or with her teacher.Â I want to be the last face she sees before she walks into the building.
If I’m feeling this emotional over a half day of kindergarten I can’t IMAGINE her going to college and actually moving out!!!Â I’m not normally like this…I’ve got to get a grip, right??
As Claire (my 3 yr. old) pointed out, “But, after kindergarten she is going to be here.”Â It’s just a hurdle, I get it.Â BUT, it doesn’t mean I like it.Â Who knew letting go would be SO hard.
The big day is a week away.Â I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙁
