Tomorrow is a big day for our little love. Tomorrow is Charlie’s meet and greet at her new preschool. She will meet her class and her teachers… She’ll get to check out the school. It’s a whole new world for this little lady…
So maybe I should just be honest and say that tomorrow is a big day for mommy. I keep thinking about my little love being at school all morning without mommy or daddy or nana or grandma or grandpa or grampie or Grammy. None of her peeps.
What will that be like for her?
Will she connect with her teachers? Will she make friends easily? Will she love school? Will she hate it? Will she cry when I drop her off? Will I cry?
Oh my goodness.
(Here comes the pep talk…)
I know this will be so good for her, but I can’t help this pit in my stomach. The thought of her looking around for her family. Mommy? Daddy?
Woah. Okay. This will be good for her. She will get over any initial hesitation (as will I). She will love it… Right?
All we have to do is have fun (together) tomorrow and then I’ll… Errrr… We will have the rest of the week and weekend to prepare. Not too bad. We can do this!
The first few times are really tough, but it gets easier, I promise!! And you’ll realize how great it is for her! We had a nanny the first year and that was such an easy transition, but school was tough…I had a few tears the first day, but it really did get easier!! Good luck, have fun Charlotte!!
Thanks, Jenny! I feel like a bit of a stupid mess! We really love the school (or what we know of it) and I think it will be really great for her… It’s just hard. Anytime you’re forced to let go of the time that you have… Or acknowledge that they’re getting older. I’ll let myself be a sap tonight and tomorrow, it’ll be a new day 🙂 Lots of love to you & Nealia!
