Alright, I had the most unexpected meltdown today. I was talking to a g/f who is a teacher and preparing to go back to work. I was helping her work on her classroom today and we were talking about our own kids going back to school. Well, my"baby" who is 5 is going to bestarting to kindergarten this year. What a wonderful time in his life! It is all very bittersweet to me,because I have had any one of my son's with me for the last 9 years!! Now all of a sudden I will have some extra time on my hands.......BY MYSELF! A part of me is really excited about this adventure...not having to worry about child care when I need to go and do things by myself. The other part of me is sad,not having my little companion with me. I think the first week of school will be a little lonely,until I get into a routine. But when I was talking with my g/f today about how excited my son is about going I BURST into tears. Very unexpected. I now know how my mother must have felt when I started school,as I am the baby of 5. She was right there for me with a hug that made me feel a lot better. I will volunteer at school,I am already a regular up there because of my other two boys. I will also be able to ride my bike,swim and run more than I am now,something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I am sure the tears aren't over....I will probably be attending the Boo-Hoo breakfast for Mommies of kindergarteners.
