When I was preparing to write for this blog today, I just didn’t have the usual motivation to write about Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia or IC Disease. Don’t get me wrong – I am still very passionate about these illnesses, but I guess from time to time I find myself needing to talk about something else.
Today my son started Kindergarten. I handled it about the way I figured I would – not well at all. I started crying Sunday morning about 2:00 a.m. and Sunday was a very hard day for me. I’m excited for him and I am happy that he is so excited, but the mother in me wants to hold on so tight.
Is he going to get off the bus okay? Will he make it to his room okay? Will he remember to give his teacher his lunch money so he can have lunch? Will he make it back onto his bus okay? Will anyone pick on him? All of these things going through my mind I’m sure other mothers can relate to.
That last look at him before stepping on the school bus I will remember forever. Today is a big day for him and me. I held the tears back until the bus pulled away.
I guess what is even harder is that he’s not just leaving for 2 hours. He is going to an all day Kindergarten so it is a big adjustment for the both of us.
So for something different on here today, I would like for you moms out there to share with me and my readers what you remember about your child’s first day of school.
