Kindergarten: Why are you trying to take my baby?

Vance is growing up.

He told me herbivore's eat plants yesterday.

I remember when he used to call Justin "mama" and refer to himself as "baby".

I recently signed up for Parents As Teachers and therefore am now on our school district's mailing list. I received a pamphlet late last week of information and nearly had an panic attack. (Coincidentally, this was also the day that Justin woke up with a herniated disc, so I had no choice but to keep it together. ((How responsible of me!)))

Without this info, I would have let kindergarten registration totally sail right by. (It's less than a month away.) Yesterday I was able to get his screening appointment set up and also signed him up for a little class that introduces him to his new school. Even a bus ride in the school's parking lot.

I'm not ready for this. I'm not ready to send him out into the world all by himself. I'm looking at kindergarten as being a bully right now. Tell me that this kindergarten idea gets better and really is not a sham to take our babies away!


What's up for today? Vance has school and Vaughn and I have music class. Looking forward to the warmer weather we're supposed to be getting tomorrow. Happy Tuesday.

    Think of it as another milestone in his life and yours. You will love having the one-on-one time with Vaughnie, getting her ready for her soon to be kindergarten days too. Mom

  2. i sobbed like a baby when i took micah to kindergarten. isaac not so much...probably because he was in pre-k for 2 years for speech. the first one is always the hardest. good luck!
