I live across the street from an elementary school. This morning I watched as all the parents dropped off or walked their kids to school. My street was busy with cars and kids. Everyone looking sharp in their new first day of school clothes, adorable!
Of course this is a reminder to me that I'll be starting work in a month. My little one starting daycare in 3 weeks and 5 days!
We are not ready!!! I am not ready!!
We are not even close to weaning!
Teething had my little guy grumpy all weekend. Not looking forward to zombiemom work days.
I have soo many concerns about daycare. How will they put him to nap? Will they give him cuddles and follow the steps I take to put him to nap? Will they give him the attention he needs. Will he miss me being away from me for almost 10 hours a day!
All first time mom worries, I'm sure. I know he will be fine and love being with the other kids. But it's sooo hard!
I truly never thought it would be this hard. Before I had Kris I was very open to sending him to daycare and looked up all the positives and now we are approaching the time and I only want to be the one taking care of him. I love being with him everyday!
I'm not ready for back to work either! My mind is not in work mode at all. All I want to think about is my sweet baby boy! I'm worried about work life balance, can I handle it? I'll have no choice! Ha! But I hope that in the busy days I always put baby K first! Having less time to play with him and watch him develop has mommy guilt already creeping in!
I know many parents are happy, excited along with worried and concerned about sending their little ones off to school today. Especially the first time preschoolers or kindergarteners. Sending positive thoughts all your way!
