Kindergarten is going to be great. There will be lots of other kids, you’ll do fun projects, and it’s going to so much fun.
That’s what we tell our kids. While the whole time thinking in the back of our mind that this is the scariest thing ever. Where did the past 5 years go? How can we be starting kindergarten already? Why is my kid growing up so fast?! SLOW DOWN. STOP!
What happens if she gets picked on? What happens if she gets lost? What if she needs something and I’m not there to help her?! What if I need her?
I know other parents have all done this and that there is nothing to worry about, but when my daughter goes to school this fall I’m going to smile and wave while hiding my emotions deep down on the inside.
Why do kids have to grow up so fast? I’m not ready for kindergarten.
