I was doing fine. keeping it together. ready to get back to my routine and not so worried about kindergarten tomorrow. telling myself it was no big deal and he was going to be great. focusing on school supplies and lunches…general preparedness was my strategy for distraction. then a friend emailed an old photo from the daycare days and mentioned she was misty eye-d and, without much warning, I joined her.
this tiny man is ready for kindergarten. he’s told me he is ready, he even said he thinks he might grow a little taller tomorrow and come home feeling awesome. but really?? this is happening? don’t get me wrong, after two and a half weeks of boys, boys, boys I want my head space and work space and time back. but, turns out I am not as ready to roll as I thought I was. if you are in the same boat, DO NOT WATCH THE RENEE AND JEREMY VIDEO BELOW. I am warning you. but, do pass on any coping strategies or commiserations. how are you dealing with back to school?
I do have lots of sewing things to share (promise), I just have to pull myself out of this fresh puddle of tears.
