Countdown to Kindergarten... 5 Days

I am in the middle of a crisis over here. I keep bursting into tears and begging Brad to let me homeschool Breuklyn so she won't have to go to Kindergarten. He doesn't seem to think that will solve anything.

So... I sing happy songs of Kindergarten delight to Breuklyn and have giggly conversations with her about what she will wear on her first day and then run and lock myself in the bathroom and cry huge big secret tears because I don't want her out there in the big scary world of the eensy teensy town we live in. Ugh!

This sucks. Just saying.

OH, do I know how you feel!! LOL As much as Mikey "annoys" me sometimes...LOL...I want him home with me...FOREVER and ever and ever and ever...you get the picture! I want to keep him four for the rest of time and have him here with me. It's a scary world out there and I want to keep him safe as long as I possibly can! Lij will be going into the FIFTH grade this year and I still wish I could keep him home too. It's hard letting your kids out of your sight and trusting that someone else will take good care of them! They are my babies :( Hang in there...it will be O-KIZAY :)

Awww hugs! It's been so long since my boys started school. This year Noah starts high school and won't be back in Toledo until just before he starts. I keep telling him it's gonna get tougher each year from now on they don't cater to you in HS. Breuklyn will be fine, her mama has made sure of that :).

Awww! I don't envy you! Lucky for me, because of where Ethan's birthday falls, I don't have to do that for one more school year.

I hope that it goes OK. It will go OK. She'll be fine. You'll be the mess. lol

Oh no Estee, the PAIN!!!! I have been there with my oldest, and my middle daughter will be going off to kindergarten in 3 weeks too. Nothing like having your heart ripped out, huh? Ughhhh...I'll be praying for you.
(Oh, and I do the same thing...talk about it in my happiest, most excited words and then turn my back and bawl!) They will be just fine. Really. The will. They will. No, seriously. Just fine.

She's gonna love it and you are going to be so happy for her. Letting go is hard, but I think you've raised one independant girl there;) It'll be fine. Hugs:)
