Tomorrow, my kiddo starts preschool. I’m holding up well – for now.
While I was rocking her tonight, I told Lucy how I’m probably going to cry tomorrow when we take her to school for the first time. Her response? “Don’t cry! I have to grow up, Mommy. I have to be 4!”
Sometimes, I feel like I’m just not going to deal well with her growing up. I want her to stay my little baby girl forever, and this is the first step of her becoming, well, my big girl. Obviously, she can’t stay a baby forever, but I can hope, right?
Lucy is SO excited to start school, and I am so happy to see her so excited. She will do amazingly well – I just know it. She’s so smart and sociable – this is just what she needs. But, tomorrow will be hard. Just as starting Pre-K next year will be hard. And, Kindergarten? I don’t even want to think about that yet.
I know I’ll cry tomorrow. It’s natural. But, I will be SO excited to hear all about her day when we pick her up. I know she’s going to have a blast!
Tomorrow, I’ll have first day of school pics of our big girl!
